Apparently since I am the "morbid snake girl" at work everyone asks me random questions about random "creep" things.

My friend just asked me what kind of bug this is.. I told her I didn't know but I'd ask...
She found it outside her house on the sidewalk. She lives in Portsmouth if that helps.

I believe that's a leg, not an ovipositor. I think it is a fly of some type, but I don't think it's a horsefly.

I've seen them hatch as flies from water if that helps.
