Neuroptera. - Megalomus

Neuroptera. - Megalomus
6 miles NW Lyons, Boulder County, Colorado, USA
July 1, 2016
Size: BL ~8 mm
Seen in the CO foothills at about 6400' elevation. Swept from a bush by a friend. Possibly a Brown lacewing? Most lacewings in BugGuide have definite necks, but this image shows head tucked under. Any help with this mystery insect is much appreciated.

Moved from Brown Lacewings.


How great to get this little brown lacewing identified to genus. Thank you so much for your help. It is much appreciated.
