Neotibicen canicularis, brown/white morph - male
Neotibicen canicularis, brown/white morph - Male
Medford Lakes, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
August 17, 2017
Size: ~38mm to 44mm
I was letting my dog out for the last time before I went to bed last night at around 10:15 pm. I was on my porch when I heard the deafening call of a Neotibicen canicularis. Because it was so loud, I knew it had to be close. Sure enough, I stepped off my porch and here was this male floundering on the ground. I thought he was covered in a mold or dust or webbing at first but he must just be one of the pine barrens brown morphs, albeit a very light/white one.

Size: Body 1.5 " with wing 2"
I thought this was dead on my back deck in the rain. It moves slowly and not much. It looks like a giant fly of some sort. I've never seen one this big. What is it?
