Your letter to the bugman: This insect showed up on my deck on June 12, 2012, in the tall grass-aspen parkland eco-region. I wish I had more info. None of my searches have come up with anything close.
I sure hope you can help solve this mystery!
How you want your letter signed: Laura
Giant Stoneflies in the genus Pteronarcys are frequently called Salmonflies. Despite there being no reports from Manitoba listed on BugGuide, since the surrounding provinces have reports, we would deduce that the range of the Giant Stoneflies also includes Manitoba.
Thanks so much for opening another window to the local ecology!
