I agree that this is most likely an Eastern Dobsonfly, Corydalus cornutus. http://bugguide.net/node/view/4873

What about Corydalus cornutus, Eastern Dobsonfly. It is quite common in the eastern part of US. But as Gordon told, there might be some other ones.

Mike, This is one of the dobsonflies in the subfamily Corydalinae. There are lots of species, so can't narrow it down any more than that. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dobsonfly for more information.
