What’s this Bug?
Hi
I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of insect this is in these pictures?
Thanks in advance
Greg

Hi Greg,
The female American Pelecinid uses that odd shaped abdomen to deposit eggs deep in the ground where the larval food, May Beetle grubs can be found. The adult drinks nectar. Males are very rare. This is the only North American species in the Family Pelecinidae.
