What is this?

Does anyone know the species name of this bug?
It's on the wall of my room being menacing, it looks like a mosquito but it's much bigger.

      We call them daddy longlegs here in bongland. It confused me when I encountered americans calling some kind of spider a daddy long legs.

    I've always heard them called "skeeter eaters" where I grew up, the implication being that they eat mosquitos. whether or not that's actually true I have no idea.

    it's like a flying spider, I hate them, I hate how goddamn gross they are flying about with their spindly legs tailing after them. I can't stand lanky bugs in general.

      It is, the wings are just folded which obscures its abdomen.

      No. It's a crane fly still, but it's a different species of crane fly.

      This one is of the Nephrotoma genus and the first one you posted is of the Tipula genus.

    Crane fly. They can't hurt you, and they're not even interested in humans. Just smack 'em with something.

      It's literally completely harmless anon, just catch it in something and release it outside.

    They're crane flies. Harmless. Looks intimidating. Just a big fly. Doesn't drink blood.

      Growing up in a concrete jungle.
      No untreated lawns, no craneflies.
      On the contrary, I can bet you grew uo among pastures (cattle farmers don't give a frick about craneflies while their larvae, "leather jackets", are a crop pest).

        Not that anon but I grew up in the suburbs of dayton, oh (middle of the rust belt) and I remember one year these guys swarming so bad that if you swung a bat through the air you'd hit an even dozen.

          From that I can see, that's peak Suburbia, and we can be glad most lawns in your neighbourhood weren't sprayed with insecticides in your childhood.
          Only downtown Dayton may qualify as what I would call "concrete jungle" (still, Dayton seems to be a pretty green city).
