DPAC, Randolph County, Indiana, USA

Size: 9.5 mm

Moved from ID Request.

But the measurement that you report is twice
what it should be.

I thought it was big that's why I threw it up
But in further review my estimation was off, it is precisely 3/8in or about .95 cm

that's a better size
(usually insect size is expressed in mm, rarely in cm)
