Hymenoptera or what?! - Climaciella brunnea
Fairfield, Wayne County, Illinois, USA
August 2, 2006
Size: 2 cm
Wings of hymenoptera, abdomen of wasp - but the head and hands look mantid. What is it? It was attracted to the porch light. I couldn't get a decent shot so I took it inside and it happily posed on a sheet of paper.
