ever since the day i saw one, i have wondered if it was like some mutated fly of some sort. It seemed, LITERALLY, transparent. I can tell you this because it landed in my desk at school, and so i got a very clear look at it.

Has anyone else seen one?

I'm not asking if they exist... because apparently i saw one.lol

Well, given that there's transparent fish, and apparently flies with transparent abdomens, I guess it's far from impossible.

What part(s) of it were transparent? Obviously some portion had to be visible or you wouldn't have seen it. :lol:

Transparent flies exist.

Not too sure what kind you saw, but I know that the Thrip, which is a small pest in greenhouses, can be very transparent. It can also be white or brown.

I think I've seen a very pale mosquito a time or 2, so anything's possible. Look it up on google!

But if it's transparent... how do you see it? :blink:

lol, it's probably a genetic variant. At uni you used to see loads of Drosophila fruit flies kicking about, probably escapees from the Life Sciences dept. In fact one staff member in particular. He was cool as hell, but he was a bit too into genetics and cross-breeding fruit flies to get weird mutants. We got him for genetics, and he was like our head in 3rd and 4th year. Cool guy.

The skin was transparent but you could see the inside parts.

I wouldn't worry about any transparent insects, it is when people seem transparent to you that you have to worry :lol:

There are many insects with transparent wings. There are even butterflies with partially transparent wings.

Mayflies, stoneflies, caddis flies, crane flies . . .  etc.

There are all kinds of different winged insects with varying degrees of "transparency."
