So for 19 years of living out here in the boondocks, I’ve been…not terrorized, but generally startled and freaked out by these little buggers flittering around the house. Nobody else had ever seen them until my sister in law came over and we caught one, and I was finally able to see it up close. Could someone possibly clue me in as to what they are? They’re no real nuisance, I’m just curious after all these years.

Dear Slightly Triumphant,
We need to make this brief. This is a Phantom Crane Fly, Bittacomorpha clavipes.
