Found this guy in the Arenal rainforest area of Costa Rica on the side of a stucco building at about 8 am. It was approximately 3 inches total length. It would not move, even when I blew on it.
We believe we have identified your Dobsonfly as a Chloronia species thanks to an image on The Smaller Majority by Piotr Naskrecki. You may also see a member of the genus on PBase, though both of the images we are linking to are considerably more yellow than your individual.
