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?

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.
