Insect Moulting - Hagenius brevistylus

Insect Moulting - Hagenius brevistylus
Redding, Saugatuck Falls Natural Area, Fairfield County, Connecticut, USA
June 22, 2013
This looks like a moulting of a fairly large insect. About as big as my thumb. Found near a small river. I've never seen anything like it.

Moved from ID Request. It's the exuviae, just the empty shell. No nymph here. The adult has flown away!

Maybe this one:

That's awesome. I would never have guessed a dragonfly nymph in a million years. Thank you.
