Unknown Prehistoric Creature

At first glace I thought is was just another moth clinging to the screen. That thought only lasted a short second.

This wasn’t just another moth. It was about 3″ long. And when I opened the screen to go outside it never moved. So I went upstairs to retrieve the camera.

Back at the screen door the prehistoric creature was still where I had last scene it. I again went outside and even left the screen door open somewhat to get good light on this creepy prehistoric creature. I took three photos and came back in.

Even where I live on the pacific coast it was getting very hot. No fool am I.

Wait, wait, it gets really creepy. I took the pictures at 1:50 PM and it’s now 6:35 PM and the creepy prehistoric creature is STILL clinging to the screen door.

So I measured it. The body (You can’t see it but you can it you’re looking at this thing from inside the garage.) is 2″ long. The entire length that you see is 2 3/4″ long.

Can anyone identify this fellow?
