Clear with blue tipped wings moth?
July 14, 2010
Dear Bugman –
I walked onto my deck to clean it and saw this moth (?) sitting on the roof underhang. It was perfectly still and didn’t move even as I was mere inches from it.
It is approximately 3-4 inches long and only about 1-2 inches wide. It has a very long narry body, Its wings were clear / see-through, except for the tips, which were a beautiful periwinkle blue.

This is probably North America’s most beautiful and distinctive Antlion, Glenurus gratus, a species that is profiled on BugGuide.
