''Panorpa cognata'' is a species of scorpionfly found across the United Kingdom, western Europe and into Russia. These slender, small insects have a forewing length ranging between 10 to 15mm, and are orange-brown in colour, sometimes with black colouration along the posterior margin, the base of the antennae, sometimes the pronotum. True to their name, males have an oval-shaped genital bulb, resembling that of a scorpion’s stinger.
