There were 5 or 6 of these on the door to the plant I work in about 45 minutes ago. Location ~ 1/4 mile from the blackstone river, on the MA/RI border, size ~ #16, two tails.

It looks a lot like a Potamanthis [sic] (i.e. eastern golden drake). The size, color, and emergence time all fit it.

Thanks, it wasn't what I expected to see this am. Unfortunately the picture through the glass didn't come out.
