unknown dragonfly-type insect
May 28, 2009
I found this insect in my home entrance.
Four similarly sized wings, folding back.
Large eyes with a small “ball” on each antenna tip.
Abdomen and rear held straight up. Six legs.
Size compared to pen in picture.

It was a very slow day here at What’s That Bug? and we posted a few new letters and decided to dig way back into the unanswered mail for a few more. Your letter was selected at random. This is an Owlfly, a relative of Lacewings and Antlions.
