long wings, 6 legs, long pinchers, long antenna. (Rockville Maryland)
Thank you for what ever help you can give
Your photo is of the male dobsonfly. This is an aquatic insect.
I have seen the female (do not have the long pinchers) but not a male…how lucky you are!
The females do not have the long ‘pinchers’, but can bite or pinch more effectively than the males.
These insects are found near fast flowing streams so there must be some water near by. The adults come to lights at night. Adults do not feed.
Larvae are aquatic predators, living in streams. Two-three years are spent in larval stage, at end of this time larvae crawl out of stream and form a pupal cell under a log, rock, etc. and then overwinter. Adults emerge spring to summer.
These are found thru out the eastern half of North America.
