Some really good photos of that male. Can we ask where he came from?

Hi Dubs-

 

I believe this female subimago to be of genus Stenacron.

The most obvious clue to its sex is the absence of claspers, which it would have were it a male.  So, I identified it as a female.  Please see my previous post.
