Drake Or Hex? Hex Or Drake?

Click on photos for full size image.
Couldn't rest. Went back to Dick Pobst and the Streamside Guide to Trout Stream Insects. The Hexagenia Limbata--aka the Hex--has unmarked wings and two tails.
The Brown Drake--Ephemera simulans--has blotched wings and three tails.
These are Brown Drakes, not Hexes.
Glad we could clear that up.
