Description

I love these things. Ken pointed out this huge one, and I was psyched to finally get some good pics (most of the ones I see don't stick around).

This is the first I've seen this bug! What a bug! :-)
Calphotos site only has one species of snakefly the Agulla unicolor. Here is the link to see: http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?enlarge=9092+3191+3539+0085

I read on another website it says that there are 25 species of Snakeflies and most of them are in the western U.S. and this site has a lot of info about them: http://buginfo.com/article.cfm?id=112
