Your letter to the bugman:  Looked like a wasp at first but then Google took me to your site and I think it’s very close to a crane fly you posted. It was sitting on my car at 35 degrees on July 27, 2021
How you want your letter signed:  Dirk

Crane Fly

Dear Dirk,
Your Crane Fly looks like an old posting from our archives that was identified as
Ctenophora ishiharai, and we located this FlickR posting that is identified as Ctenophora nohirae.  We believe the latter is a closer match.

Wow, thanks a lot!
Much appreciated.
Dirk
