  • I saw this Bug along the path coming back from the Beach.  it have wings but it seemed not to use them to fly but it used them like a parachute as it came to land. it climbed up the long glass and upped to the next putting wings out at landing. Please help with the ID Thank


  • Hi Nick,   looks like some kind of flying ant,  take a look HERE    an article from last year which has similarities to your photo.    I'm not an expert so wait for others to comment but at least this will bump your post back up. 

  • Thanks Hazy for coming back so quick. :)

  • Hi Nick, its a Devil's Coach Horse beetle about to take off, hope that helps.

    cheers, Bear
