Green Lacewing

December 2, 2012 by  

Green Lacewing, Green lacewings are insects in the large family Chrysopidae of the order Neuroptera. There are about 85 genera and (differing between sources) 1,300-2,000 species in this widespread group. Members of the genera Chrysopa and Chrysoperla are very common in North America and Europe; they are very similar and many of their species have been moved from one genus to the other time and again, and in the non-scientific literature assignment to Chrysopa and Chrysoperla can rarely be relied upon.

Since they are the most familiar neuropterids to many people, they are often simply called “lacewings”. But actually most of the diversity of Neuroptera are properly referred to as some sort of “lacewing”, so common lacewings is preferable.
