Square Headed Snakefly

Dear Ya boi,
Thanks for the compliment.  This is a very exciting posting for us.  Though we immediately recognized this as a Snakefly in the insect order Raphidioptera, we also recognized that is was different from other Snakeflies on our site.  We identified it as a Square Headed Snakefly in the genus
Negha on BugGuide.  According to BugGuide:  “This is the only genus within the family Inocceliidae in North America.”  This is also the first posting on our site of a Square Headed Snakefly.

Location: Mount Baldy, California
