Large mothlike insect thorax with Dragonfly Wings?

Spartanburg, SC

Hi All - I was hoping you could help me identify this insect? It's pretty large, maybe two inches long and almost 2 inches in circumference at the center of the thorax. It's got a really large body, and wings that resemble a dragonfly's. I'll post a few pics with a penny in the frame for reference. Thanks in advance -

Cicada if I'm not mistaken

Yup. Looks like one of the dog-day cicadas in the genus Neotibicen...
