Female Dobsonfly?
June 9, 2010
Found this guy on my doorstep this morning. He is about 2 1/2 inches long. Pretty sure it was a male dobsonfly but after looking at your website was wondering if maybe it is not a female….would love to know. Thanks

You are absolutely correct.  You may compare your photo to that of a recently posted male Dobsonfly to see how the mandibles differ between the sexes.
