What on earth is this?

I’ve scoured the Internet, and I can’t figure this out. It looks like a damselfly with antennae. This was taken 7/16/08 at night. It was drawn to my porch light.

Hi shane,
This is, in our opinion, the most beautiful North American Antlion, Glenurus gratus.  You can see more images on BugGuide which states:  “Larvae reported to live in cavities such as tree holes (among sawdust) and in burrows of Gopher Tortoise, Gopherus polyphemus, a threatened species.

THANK YOU!  That was driving me nuts.
