Calling All Science Guys!

Didn't know where else to put this question! Hopefully someone with a degree can help me out here.


Found this odd creature on the porch tonight. Wings look like a cicada's, but the body isn't even close. Any ideas? Total length is about 2".

My next question is.... what the heck is it doing on my front porch? I suppose it's not going to do any biological damage, so I'll release it from captivity! I think the tranquilizer dart is starting to wear off anyway!

Had the porch light on, and there's a pond down the street!


After checking out that most excellent site, it's definately a fishfly. Thanks for all the input guys! It just goes to show, you're never too old to learn. Now I can distinguish between a Dobsonfly and a Fishfly... and I know what mandibles are! ;)
