Moved from ID Request.

Looks like P. nuptialis to me!
They're bigger for the genus (~20mm), and those wings are pretty distinct as well.

cool
That's a really cool looking scorpionfly. I'm pretty sure I got a split second look at one in MO summer 08. Wish I could've gotten shots like this! Very nice.

 
Thanks Natalie and Andrew!
I guess I must have been in a hurry the day I moved these images. I try to always edit the automated 'Moved' comment and leave a 'thank you' but I see that I failed to do so this time.

Thanks to both of you for the confirmation and the kind words!

And please excuse my lack of manners and this extra email :)
