In reply to tuwit:
tuwit said:It isn't a mayfly IMO. As far as I know all the mayfly species in the UK hold their wings at rest in the same manner. Even fossilised mayflies have exhibited the same wing 'posture' (the wikipedia entry for mayfly has a pic of a fossilised mayfly). Mayflies were one of the first winged insects, with fossils dating back over 300 million years (www.buglife.org.uk/.../).
Many thanks for the info.
