I found a bug, that has a large snout with burs on the end, 4 black and yellow striped wings, a red abdomen that is very narrow with pinchers at the end of it, that it curls up and when threatened, sends it up over it wings past its head. the wings are seperate from each other, but in rest the wings lay on top of each other so it looks like there are only two. i don’t have a good picture, but I could send one to a direct email. Thak you for your help, nobody I’ve asked can identify it.

Despite its name and appearance, the Scorpionfly is a perfectly harmless creature.
Hmmm. Thank you. What a perfectly fitting name.
