Stonefly – Damselfly Cross With Black & Pink Wing Tips
Dear Bugman:
OK, if that subject line didn’t catch your attention and you don’t look at the photos, I’m toast. I live in far northern Arkansas in Carroll County within a few miles of the Missouri state line. This beautiful creature showed up at our lights this morning. We were expecting moths, but this is a wonderful bug. I have exhausted my field guides and searched every site I know on the internet. This is your cue to reply that I have sent a very common bug, known to even 8 year olds. But no matter, I am now so curious that I just want to know what I’ve found. I love your site, but like my own collection of photos it has grown to enormous proportions. Keep up the great work guys and thanks for any help you can give me.
David

Hi David,
