Insect below observed July 27, 2005 in Jackson County, Alabama. On siding of house next to light left on all night. Size about 5+ cm . What’s that bug? Clear wings with lots of veins and the terminal ends of the forewing look liked they were dipped in wax.
Some sort of neuropteran?

Hi Paul,
We searched on BugGuide for a species name for your Antlion, which is in fact a Neuropteran. We believe it to be in the genus Glenurus, maybe G. gratus. Would you mind if we also posted your image on BugGuide?
