who am i?
hi bugman! our kids and i love your site! we have a bug we’d love to know more about. it’s 3 inches long and at the widest point of its wings it’s 1 inch across. we live in central florida and have many large, interesting bugs, but this is one that is new to us. we’ve sent along a picture of it taken on the tire of our car. its wings appear to be gray in the picture, but they are actually almost completly see-thru. thanks for your help!!!

Hi Taylor Family,
We located a nearly identical photo of an Antlion in the genus Vella on BugGuide. That specimen is also on a car tire and was also photographed in Florida.
