Green Lacewing
Chrysoperla spp. / Neuroptera
This adult Lacewing was photographed on a sheet that we attached on the wall of the cabin at science camp. We had turned on a black light overnight to attract insects. Lacewings lay their eggs on tree bark. Since the larvae are canabilistic, the eggs are located at the end of thin stalks. The larvae cover themselves with tiny pieces of tree bark and lichen as a form of camouflage. The larvae attack and eat tiny insects. (See photo #7)
