Scorpion Fly  > Panorpa luqubris - Panorpa lugubris - female

Scorpion Fly > Panorpa luqubris - Panorpa lugubris - Female
Middleburg, Clay County, Florida, USA
November 16, 2009
Size: 17.05mm
I didn't even know where to start on this critter. Two pair wings, large soft body, large
wings, slow flyer, long legs, and LARGE sucking mouth parts. Except for the last, I
thought it might be a Wasp Moth. Bright orange thorax, antennae with ~35 segments.
Thanks to Vassili, narrowed down to P. luqubris. Found several more flying around in the
same general area under a large loblolly pine in my back yard.
