Male Dobsonfly in NE Pennsylvania
This Dobsonfly landed on a screen window on July 26, 2008 – showing the UNDERSIDE (since it was outside the screen). I was able to identify this as a male – because of your excellent website…. It truly was a fearsome looking creature. I used to fish the Susquehanna River for bass using hellgramites, which would sometimes nip a finger as we gathered them from beneath the rocks. I never realized that they would grow up to look like this.

Thanks for providing our website with an interesting perspective on this male Dobsonfly.
