Chrysoperla camea s. l.
Chrysoperla camea s. l. belong to the net-winged insects and are family members of the Green lacewings. They can be found throughout the world except in Australia and are encountered at almost every topographical height.

Chrysoperla camea s. l. reach wing spans of between 15 and 30 mm. Their bodies are long, slender and green in colour. Their wings have thick veins. They have compound eyes which glitter and are bright and clear. Some types turn brown before the winter. Chrysoperla camea s. l. reproduce several times a year. The adult insects are usually active at twilight and feed on pollen, nectar and honeydew from aphids. During the day they sit, hidden, under leaves. They overwinter in places where they are well hidden from other animals and insects. Their larvae are considered beneficial as they eat aphids (up to 10 per day) and aphids are viewed as pests in agriculture. In 1999, the Chrysoperla camea s. l. was declared Insect of the year.
