A black insect, with red antennae and what looks like a long “nose” hooked under its head. It has a black shell with three rows of serrations, with the row across its back having more teeth than the two sides. Abdomen scoops up and shiny, iridescent brown wings fold on top; the abdomen has white spots on the bottom. Seen in Ashburn, VA.
It is a wheel bug and if yours was that long it must be a record!
Usually only big bugs like that are in the tropics.
