Lacewing - Brown
 

FAMILY: Hemerobiidae

Brown lacewing adults look and behave very much like green lacewing adults, but they are tan in color and are not encountered very often.

Pictured below is a so-called "trash bug." Trashbugs are immature brown lacewings. Like green lacewing larvae, brown lacewing larvae are predators, but some species cover themselves with debris and with the skins of their prey as a way to protect themselves from larger predators.
This brown lacewing larvae has used dead ants for its covering.
