I'm really sorry for all the bug lovers out there, but unfortunately we killed the insect we are trying to identify in the photo attached.
It fell apart quite badly however we retrieved a wing and it's large shell like body and put it with it's main upper body with legs/head etc.
It was crawling on my boyfriend's shoulder in the lounge, I'm not sure whether he brought it in from outside or not.
I'd was a very large insect, probably around 5cm length at a rough guess.
I't head/eyes and pincers looked like it should be on a spider but it had wings and and extra almost wasp like body and large wings and when it was killed lots of clear runny substance came out of it.
We really want to know what this is as non of us have ever seen anything like this before.
Anyone know what this could be?
We do feel bad for killing it, so sorry!
