An amazing antlion adult found in KZ South Africa, not sure on which genus so would welcome suggestions.


Young/larval stage lives in burrows in sand and fine soil and are veracious predators, snatching passing insects. Adults are very different in form are sometimes described as antlion lacewings.


Thanks in advance for any help on the ID.
