What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Part wasp / part mantis?
Bugman,
I Came across this insect two days ago in Howell, MI and have no idea what it is. I’ve enclosed two pictures of it. The first is the best view of what it looks like, the second gives a better look at its wings.
Thanks,
Lee Mitnick
(And thanks for a great site.)

Hi Lee,
What a nice image of a Brown Mantidfly, Climaciella brunnea, one of the Neuropterans or Nerve Winged Insects. Adults and larvae are both predatory.
