family Corydalidae - Dobsonflies and Fishflies
This image gallery has been created to assist visitors with the identification of Megaloptera - Alderflies, Dobsonflies, and Fishflies.
As in every yard, there are a myriad different insects and bugs to be found, and I've barely scratched the surface - I seem to discover new visitors and residents every day of "Bug Season" (for me that's March through early October). As I find, photograph and identify new Megaloptera, they will be added to the gallery.
PHOTOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS AND DATES:
Currently, the Megaloptera identification on this page is specific to Alderflies, Dobsonflies and /or Fishflies that show up in and around my yard - unfortunately, I've only found the two specimens, below, so far, and only been able to ID them to family level. These Megaloptera, however, are also found in many other parts of the United States and Canada.
Unless otherwise noted, all images were taken in Northern Douglas County, Oregon.
The date each photograph was taken appears under each thumbnail image. The sex of each specimen, if known, is also indicated under each thumbnail.

Please note that due to the nature of the beast, Where Art Meets the Heart will evolve over time. Check back periodically to see what's new.
