It really doesn't look like a mayfly. No split tail, and mayflies don't seem to keep their back legs extended when lighting.

I’m going to bet against ichneumon wasp because the long bit on DE’s specimen is the actual abdomen, not an ovipositor like on the wasp.

Could still be a wasp of some sort, but not ichneumon.
