Yeah I'm confused now. I thought Daddy long legs was a spider, but I was reading and found out they also call Daddy long legs to this fly and opiliones, which are not spiders. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/624...

over here we call them 'Daddy Long Legs' which is completely wrong, thats a spider!!!

But Mosquito Hawk sure is a fancy name for something so graceless!
