Question of the Week – Tradescantia

Posted by romeethredge on May 28, 2015

Last week I had a plant I wanted you to identify. It was Tradescantia virginiana,  Virginia Spiderwort. They can keep in in Virginia as far as many folks are concerned. It is a nice wildflower you could say but it’s a problem in yards as it is agressive and kind of invasive.

This week I want you to identify this insect that was sent to me for identification. It’s large, about 4 inches long.

    Looks like a Dobson Fly. That one is a male.
