Moved from Chrysoperla rufilabris following our conversations on iNat and the new page creation. Cheers!

Might not be Chrysoperla
I'm seeing definite reddish markings on the clypeus, which shouldn't occur in C. rufilabris (and would be rather odd for Chrysoperla species to my knowledge). I know this occurs in our one species of Chrysopodes, though I'm suspect of the red on the top of the head (I'm used to seeing this region entirely white).

 
I emailed TX A&M neuroptera e
I emailed TX A&M neuroptera expert John Oswald about this one a while back, questioning whether the ID of Chrysoperla rufilabris was correct. He said, "It looks like a Chrysoperla, but I wouldn’t be confident enough to put a species name on it from just the photo. There is variation in the amount of red on the head, and elsewhere on the body."

 
Catherine Tauber of Cornell
Catherine Tauber of Cornell (cat6 [at] cornell [dot] edu) may also be worth reaching out to as she worked on revising this group. There's a decent amount of overlap in physical appearance between Chrysoperla and Chrysopodes, especially as both genera have similar pale streaks down the body. They do differ in wing venation, though. It also doesn't seem to be a frequently studied species compared to others as I believe its only occurrence in the US is restricted to Texas and Florida. I've found a small handful of potentials within BugGuide records, which would be a new species and genus for the site Here are some of the few photographic records I've been able to scrounge up:
