I digress...

...once again. 
I found this crazy looking bug on a closepin in the back yard while taking down the wash today. I can't find it in my insect book, which is admittedly a rather lame one, but I can't seem to find anything on the internet either. Any entomologists out there?


  1. My old pal Kim Rard O'Shea used her considerable knowledge of the insect world to correctly identify this little gem as a snakefly. Thanks Kim! Found west of the Rockies in this country. This one is a female.

  2. I wouldn't have found it in my bug book. It's exotic and beautiful.

  3. Dawn, keep your eyes peeled. It's also found in Europe!
