Hello! I found this wasp-looking insect in early september amongst my wildflowers! I don’t think that i’ve ever noticed one before.

Hi mikkel,
This is a Mantispid or Mantidfly, and it is not even closely related to mantids or wasps.  It is classified with the Lacewings and Antlions as a Neuropteran.
  We have not had luck finding a visual species match.
