Your letter to the bugman: This was on a lavender plant in our yard on June 26th. I am wondering if it’s a member of the antlion group of insects – and specifically what species it is. Thanks for your time!

This is a beneficial, predatory Snakefly in the order Raphidioptera. Your image is quite nice, so much so that we would call it a portrait of this Snakefly.
