Spring Fishfly - Chauliodes rastricornis - female

Spring Fishfly - Chauliodes rastricornis - Female
Treyburn area, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
May 4, 2004
Detail of head and serrate antennae. Dark markings on the head are indicative of this species, as are the serrate antennae, which indicates a female as well. Note the bright spot on the head--this is likely reflection of the flash from an ocellus (simple eye.)
