Stick insect

Definitely a stick insect - see identification notes.

Identification

Hi,

I think it may be a species of scorpian fly. I only think this because of the tail it has.

What do you think about this?

Stick insect

Definitely not a scorpion fly - they have full-sized wings and the head is extended to form a beak. I am sure it is the stick insect I have given in my identification - it is very distinctive,
