Thanks to your website, I was able to identify this fascinating ”bug”, that was on the wall of my sister’s house in Putnam Valley, NY, a few days ago. The popular guess was ”a mosquito”…but I wasn’t convinced!

The distinctive markings on the wings distinguish the Giant Eastern Crane Fly,
Pedicia albivitta.
