I’ve been around 40 years and I have never seen an insect like this before. It was on my garage door late one night. It has 2 sets of wings that look like they are from a cicada, beyond that its just weird.

Dear Don,
This impressive creature is a male Dobsonfly, and Dobsonflies are among our most common identification requests during the summer months.  Despite the impressive mandibles, Dobsonflies are harmless.  Your submission will go live next week since we are leaving the office for a short holiday and we are postdating submissions to go live during our absence.
