Hi,
This fellow was flying around in our house on two successive evenings. Caught him last night to examine him. Has wings like a dragonfly and a body unlike a dragonfly.
I live in lower NY state, Putnam County.

Hey Jude,
This is a Summer Fish Fly,
Chauliodes pectinicornis, and it can be distinguished from the similar looking but even larger Eastern Dobsonfly by the pectinate or combed antennae.
