Hidden Taxonomic Diversity within Chrysoperla plorabunda (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae): Two New Species Based on Courtship Songs

This paper is the description of C. adamsi and C. johnsoni, split from C. plorabunda on the basis of their differing courtship songs. Together, these three may be referred to as the C. plorabunda species group. Additional notes on the distinction of this species group from our other carnea-group member, C. downesi, are also given.
