New information is still coming through but what is known about the bug is that it comes from the order Megaloptera, a classification including 300 alderflies, dobsonflies and fishflies.
It's freaking huge.
The insect's wingspan stretches around 21 cm — enough to wrap around a human's face. But it's not all bad news as the Mashable video above points out. Aside from its terrifying appearance, the discovery of the insect usually means clean water is nearby since dobsonflies and similar insects need unpolluted water to breed.
