Dear JJ,
This is an Antlion in the family Myrmeleontidae.  Though it doesn’t appear to match the individuals pictured on the Brisbane Insect Website, that is a nice place to learn more about these fascinating creatures.  The larvae are called Doodlebugs in North America.


Thanks for taking the time to get back to me, will most defiantly look into it more. Thanks again.
