Found this creature near my house and wondering what it could be? Notice the wings and pinchers on the head.
We just posted a letter and commented on the great number of requests we have received in the last week and a half to identify Dobsonflies and their larvae, called Hellgrammites. You have submitted a photo of the pupa of a Dobsonfly, and judging by the mandibles, it is a male.
