Found on my wall around the bathroom light. Yes, that is my wall, the wings are translucent. We named him/her Larry, but never seen before. Stayed there most of the night, but was gone in the morning.

Dear Stan the Man,
Larry the Bug is an Antlion.  Antlions are Nerve Winged Insects in the family Myrmeleontidae.  The larvae are also known as Doodle Bugs and they dig small pits in the sand to trap ants and other insects.  The Doodle Bug lies at the bottom of the pit buried in the sand with just its jaws protruding.
