Your letter to the bugman:  I found a number of these while fishing a small urban pond. They seem to have a single pair of wings and three ‘tails’ for lack of a better term. I was fishing all day and these seemed to appear in greater number in the late afternoon to evening hours and seemed harmless enough.

White Mayfly

Dear Brian,
Though we recognized your insect as a Mayfly in the order Ephemeroptera, its appearance is quite different from other Mayflies in our archives.  We identified your individual as a White Mayfly, possibly
Ephoron album which is pictured on BugGuide, and though BugGuide does not report any sightings in Arizona, there are sightings from nearby Colorado and Utah.
