This owlfly was photographed near the window of a convenience store in Poth, TX. I'm not sure if this can be identified to species.
After some research I found that macleayanus was the only Ululodes species that I could find with accounts in deep South Texas, so I'm guessing this is one.
This little guy literally landed on our door at night.
The insect appears like a dragonfly however, it has a pair of long black coloured antennae with club shape at the end of it.
Wings are transperant. Eyes are distinctly big in size.
Honey coloured abdomen portion set upside.
Not very active.
Owlflies are dragonfly-like insects with large bulging eyes and long knobbed antennae. They are neuropterans in the family Ascalaphidae; they are only distantly related to the true flies, and even more distant from the dragonflies and damselflies. They are diurnal or crepuscular predators of other flying insects, and are typically 5 cm (2.0 in) long.
