Was wondering what this bug was called

Dear April,
Despite resembling a moth, this is actually an Antlion,
Vella americana, and you can compare your individual to this photo on BugGuide.

I have never seen the adult form only the larvae . Couple years ago my son did a science project on them, only to find out they grow to have wings .This is great to actually see one .Thank you.
