Your letter to the bugman:  Found this little critter with something like halteres where Firestone should be, next to a pond in LA. Doesn’t appear to be exuviae. Any ideas?
How you want your letter signed:  Susan

Plume Moth we believe

Dear Susan,
This is not a Mayfly.  We believe it is a Plume Moth in the family Pterophoridae, possibly
Dejongia californicus which is pictured on The Natural History of Orange County., or possibly Megalorhipida leucodactylus which is pictured on BugGuide.

That’s it! Cool!!
Thank you!!!
Location: Los Angeles, California
