Lacewings

Hi Ian

We only have C perla or C carnea recorded here
As stated rear them or in the alternative compare the image with vouchered specimens like all thing Images are not necessarily the answer experience and circumstance leads me to Chrysopa with the devloping pronotom reflecting the pattern seen in the adult with the safest ob being to genus There are generally no keys for nymphs or larval forms the best when to nail it is to devlope the adult
