Large (size 10 or so), brown/mahogany body, clear wings, reddish eyes with stripe in middle (this seems a distinguishing characteristic of Isonychia). 2 tails. Imago. Surprised to see this genus on this river.

Small (size 18 - 22). There seems to be a range of sizes, but I only caught this one to examine closely. Dull yellow body, grey wings. This one is probably a female, eyes are rather small. 3 tails. Identified by Mike Cole under magnification.

Description

pale yellow body, greyish-white wings (dun - spinner wings translucent), about a size 18 or 20; a little larger than I would have thought this late in the year. Dark orange eyes (dark brown lower portion of eyes) in the dun. 3 tails.
Note that these photos show 2 different individuals - one dun , one spinner - which I believe to be the same species. I save a specimen of the spinner.

Description

These are Ephemerella invaria, not E. dorothea. Both can be on this river this time of year. These 2 specimens were 8-9mm, a bit larger than dorothea usually get. Note these are two different individuals - a male dun and a female spinner - but both are invaria. Later identified under magnification by Mike Cole. 3 tails, yellow/olive or yellow/brown body. These two photos were both taken the next morning, after each had spent the night my refrigerator. See earlier photo of the dun, taken a few minutes after capture, which shows a much more yellow body color.
