Ok, I see it, but it looks like it has 6 wings. Cool!

That's just a perspective issue, I think: the back wings are spread further than the front wings. I assume that's supposed to be Meganeura.

However, the Paleodictyoptera were a group of Paleozoic insects that had a pair of lobes that looked like a third pair of "proto-wings": really cool!
