Bug Identification: A variety of May Fly

Sorry it's sideways, but can anybody identify this particular mayfly? Purely for purposes of curiosity, I don't have trouble imitating these guys but I run into them all the time in the alpine lakes. This photo was taken mid day, in mid July, maybe in the upper 60s or low 70s if my memory serves.

Taxon could probably give you a better reply,but judging by the speckling on the wings,it appears to be a Callibaetis, your basic stillwater mayfly.
