Hi Everyone,

Please help me to ID this thing.

Find one every couple of days at night in the house, flies low, and mostly just flaps its wings on the ground. The next day found dead.

It's like a worm (5cm) with short wings - it can flex its body like a worm, and it it gets upside down it struggles until its the right way up again.

Here is a link to a US site I posted the pictures in, but I'm afraid they won't know what to do with a bug from Jerusalem...
