David, I agree that C. carnea is a possible identification, but there are some other species of entirely green lacewing, how are you ruling them out? From the photo alone I don't think I could be sure of it being carnea.

green lacewings

Hi Martin

I was uisng the absence of black viens and spotting between antennae. The fact that it is probably the most common species (Although I am aware it may be two or even three species)was another reason as was the match with the photo in the Collins guide I use for identification. Also I struggled finding any useful info on the net. Do you know of any good sites?
