Look at this weird insect


Ok, you have to enlarge this photo.

Climaciella brunnea: the Wasp Mantidfly is really neither of those things (well, it’s a mantidfly, but you know what I mean). It’s not a wasp (order Hymenoptera, includes bees and ants, too) nor is it a mantis (order Mantodea, pretty much just mantids). It’s actually more related to lacewings and antlions (order Neuroptera).

Doesn’t it just look strange?
