Note: The taxonomy is a bit out of date and differs to that used by BugGuide.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.

Hidden Taxonomic Diversity within Chrysoperla plorabunda (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae): Two New Species Based on Courtship Songs
By Henry, C.S.; Wells M.[L.]M.; Pupedis, R.J.
Annals of the Entomological Society of America 86:1-13, 1993
FULL TEXT

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.
