Saw this one last night when the light in my porch attracted it. Thought it was a huge mosquito first, but see the moth like antanae in the photo. Body length about 4-5cm, quite large. Wings transparent. Never seen one like this before.

Dear Wildlife Sightings,
You have sighted a Summer Fishfly, Chauliodes pectinicornis. You can find information on the species on bugguide. The pectinate antennae do resemble those of a moth.
