Brown Lacewing



Backyard. On the wall of the house.


I am not sure what these are called. There was 100's of them attracted to the lights - everywhere. If I went outside, I had to close the door quickly or they would get in the house.

Looks like one of the 'Brown lacewings' group (Hemerobiidae) maybe... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemerobiida... but it really needs a lateral shot. The 'neck' looks right to me. :-)
