Scorpion fly (Panorpa communis)

This is a male of the species as it has an upturned abdomen. The female abdomen just tapers off. It does have a long snout with biting mouth-parts. It feeds on dying insects but is quite harmless. (Unless you are a dying insect of course). You can find lots of these around  shady woodland and on nettles.
