Green Lacewing

Chrysoperla rufilabris


Noted this lacewing, ~3/4 inch long including antennae, on the exterior of the dual-pane patio door, drawn to the nearby outside light.


Set camera to macro, and placed lens directly against inside glass... hence the underside view. Initially I had no idea what this was - but am now leaning to Green Lacewing (Chrysoperla rufilabris). I see from Wikipedia that classification is complicated and has frequently changed — so I am hoping for ID assistance from the Project Noah community.

Reckon this is why lace was brought into clothing. Very intricate pattern. Nice shot.
