Brown Lacewing - Micromus subanticus

Brown Lacewing - Micromus subanticus
south Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA

At lights in small mesic patch under an oak-willow canopy...

Banded tibia?
Mike, are the tibia banded? Does that mean that this could be a Micromus posticus, because I'm not sure? Most of the images of that species appear to have them. Also, the width vs. length ratio of the wings seems to be a bit larger in that species, correct?
I'm sorry that I cannot instruct you and I'm just asking for clarification, as I haven't gone through the key yet. Also, there is nothing about these characters on the info tabs. Thanks for helping!

sorry, I'm not an expert on this group
so I really can't help with any of your queries. sorry, Mike
