Any idea what this lil fellow is? I found it in the middle of the night while taking a walk West Texas!


OWLFLY OWLFLY OWLFLY

THEY ARE THE BEST FURRY BOYS

THEY ARE SO GOOD

The one you have is in the Ululodes genus [link to bugguide], which is separated from the other owlflies by their divided eyes. They are closely related to antlions, and their larvae are similar and very strange [link to photos of strange larvae].

These guys are not seen very often, so you should consider yourself blessed. Congratulations!
