Bio: Fossilized snakeflies are dated as far back as the early Cretaceous period (146 million years ago – during the time of dinosaurs). They are called snake flies because their necks extend out far beyond the body and their heads resemble a snake’s head. Their larval period lasts at least one year and sometimes up to three years. They have narrow bodies with an elongated neck, movable head and two pairs of wings which range from 5 to 20 mm wide.
