One thought on “Bug of the Week: Insect Wing Identification Mystery

    Well, #3 is something of a giveaway, with the abdomen in the shot. Looks like there's going to be "War", at least according to the "W" on the wing of your Magicicada (from last year's Brood II?).

    The rest are more of a stretch (as I suck at wings): the fuzzy legs look bee-ish in #1.

    Is that a haltere by the pin in #2? if so, it would be a big fly, but it doesn't really look fly-y to me.

    4. has scales so moth/butterfly/skipper. I'll go with moth.

    5. thicker on the upper half would be a true bug, but it seems a bit translucent for that.

    6. is a dragonfly/damsel, those dark marks on the margin are important, though I can never remember who's supposed to have what.
