Trying to figure out a bug...

Post  MikeP on 5/7/2012, 9:29 am

Sorry I don't have a pic, but there were some bugs I saw in my garden over the weekend that I am trying to ID and I was hoping someone might be able to lend a hand.
Here is the description, hopefully it is not too vague. It looked almost like a green lacewing except that the body was black and it had a shorter (though still slightly elongated) abdomen. It didn't fly as fast and nimbly as a lacewing, it was more of a flutter like a butterfly.
I easily caught one out of the air and when stationary its wings folded also looked almost like a lacewing, only shorter.

Thoughts?

Could it possibly be a May Fly?



It is, afterall, May!

Thanks for getting back to me.
Nope, it was all black and didn't have the parts sticking out from the abdomen. Also, the head seemed a little smaller.

I was almost thinking some kind of ant but I didn't get a long enough look at it as my daughter needed my attention.

I was doing a little research on the Web last night and I thought they might have been sciarid flies, but I'm not sure the size matches up. From what I remember reading, sciarid flies are about 1-2mm in length, but these were closer to about 1/4 - 1/3 of an inch.
