Found in China also in Viet Nam. This is a large insect but doesn't care for polluted. CNN article says pollution will cause the insect to locate another stream or body of water.

Here's the CNN article:

Split your lungs with blood and thunder
When you see the white whale
Break your backs and crack your oars men
If you wish to prevail

Holy crap. I read an article about that but someplace, and read that it had like an 8 inch wingspan or something. Didn't really appreciate just how big that is until I saw the picture you posted with somebody's hand in it for reference.

Looks more like some type of dragon fly to me, a Dobson fly looks more like a stone fly or salmon fly.

The object of a resource is to use and reuse a resource, not to use it up, have we learned nothing in over 125 years of stocking?
