Owly Sulphur
Ascalaphe soufré

Order: Neuroptera
Family: Ascalaphidae
Size: 42-55mm
Distribution:Central Europe
Habitat: Dry and sunny places
Diet: Small insects

This time a female Owly Sulphur. We can recognize it by the lack of the typical pincers at the end of the abdomen. I have seen this specimen on a sunny slope where these insects were quite numerous to fly around at the end of a sunny morning. I have noticed that they are more visible at this moment of the day.

Hello Anne,
What a unique looking insect. It's wings look like a cross between a dragonfly and a Skipper Butterfly. Quite attractive and interesting at the same time. Well done!!
