About an inch and a half long. Looks like it may be a flying insect. Looks kind of like a web spinner but doesn't have the long antenna & really not sure... Never saw anything like it before. Anyone know what it is please?

Order Megaloptera; either a fishfly or dobsonfly. Harmless; immatures are aquatic predators.
