Systematics of North American chrysopid larvae: Chrysopa carnea group (Neuroptera)
By Catherine A. Tauber
The Canadian Entomologist 106(11), 1974
Cite: 1947797 with citation markup [cite:1947797]


Note: The taxonomy is a bit out of date and differs to that used by BugGuide. The presented "carnea group" corresponds to the current treatment of the genus Chrysoperla (including both the carnea and pudica groups), and the presented "Chrysop carnea" refers to unconsolidated members of the Chrysoperla carnea group including C. plorabunda.
