As far as I know Ephemera species have three 'tails', so these are not Ephemera - but I don't know what they are Sad (I think photos 1 and 3 are female, photo 2 is male).

As Martin said, Ephemera spp. have 3 tails - and they just look different to the ones in the photos. Here is a photo of Ephemera vulgata that shows it quite nicely I think Smile

I learned about those subimagines quite recently and this is something quite difficult to think about. How they can mould with such big wings...
