Bug on the Wall
I reside In Merlin, Oregon. This wonderful bug is on our garage outside wall but the light. It looks like one of the bugs on your site but I can’t tell for sure. I would love to know his name.

Hi Barbara,
This is a Gray Fishfly in the genus Neohermes. They are distinguised from other members of the family Corydalidae by the moniliform antennae that are like a string of beads. Bugguide does not explain how to tell the various species from one another, but seeing as you are on the west coast, this is probably the California Dobsonfly, Neohermes californica.
