|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|One of several seen on the top of the citadel at Sardis yesterday. There were none on the slopes on the way up. All were on the same white flower, making them very difficult to photograph in full sun.|
We would be pleased to know what they are.

Hello again, Geoffrey.
Your insect is another of the antlion family - the Threadwing Antlion Nemoptera sinuata. It's a little overexposed and not entirely sharp, but the details are all clearly visible.
Best wishes, Nigel.
