Project 879: L. A. Somma, S. Cresswell, J. C. Dunford. 2013. Rediscovery of the Florida Scorpionfly, Panorpa floridana Byers (Mecoptera: Panorpidae). Insecta Mundi. 0303:1-5.
Specimen: Panorpa floridana (FNAI:Ref. Code: N13CRE01FLUS, Ref. ID: 189911)


We describe the rediscovery of the Florida scorpionfly, Panorpa floridana Byers, at Gold Head Branch State Park, Clay County, Florida, based upon a single, living, adult specimen photographed on 4 November 2010. The hardcopy photographic prints and electronic digital images of this panorpid are the first vouchers for P. floridana in 28 years, the only observation of a living specimen, and the sixth individual known of this seemingly rare Florida endemic.
