Found this on the driveway. All of the pics that I have seen of this look similar but this is more cone shaped and the legs look furrier?
This is a large, predatory Robber Fly, most likely a Red Footed Cannibalfly. We can’t help but wonder why there is a severed leg in the upper left corner of the photo, so we are wondering What Killed the Red Footed Cannibalfly??? The Red Footed Cannibalfly is our featured Bug of the Month for September 2013.

I am not sure what happened to the poor bug.. We found it on the driveway in that condition. Thanks for letting me know what it was, I didn’t think it was a pigeon horn tail….thanks again.
