Summer Fishfly, Forest Tent Caterpillar Moth, an unidentified pug moth, beetle, & somethin' else. Should give you an idea of the size of the fishfly! These things are enormous -- probably ~8 cm wingspan. Came to mercury vapor lamp; park with a good-sized tract of moist deciduous woods near a large pond.
