male dobson fly
I believe this is a picture of a male dobson fly… we found him by the Allegheny River in Warren, PA. Thanks for the great website, very informative!!
What an absolutely gorgeous specimen of a male Dobsonfly you have photographed. He is a trophey specimen for sure. Eric Eaton provided this observation: “The male dobsonfly has emerged so recently that his wings are not yet dry and his pigment not fully expressed, as evidenced by his white jaws. Eric”
