Hi. I saw this on the ground in Dubrovnik in Croatia in September. I would estimate it to be almost 6inches long. It was dead at the time but it looks like it might have wings. Many thanks

Hi Mark,
This is a predatory, aquatic insect known as a Giant Water Bug.  In North America they are called Toe-Biters and they are eaten in Thailand.
