Chrysopid - see also egg & larva - Chrysoperla externa - Female
Galleria area, Houston, Harris County, Texas, USA
August 24, 2016
Size: ~10 mm BL
This adult was collected by sweep net. It laid several eggs in a vial, including this one

This larva hatched from one of the eggs.

See remarks at egg image and larva image #1 for details re egg and larva.

If any or all of these images should be linked, let me know.

Update in early 2017: John Oswald comments, "This looks like one of the smaller green species that are difficult to ID with confidence from photos. I suspect that it is probably one of the Ceraeochrysa species."
