green lacewing - Chrysoperla green lacewing - Chrysoperla

from N.D. Penny:
"This is almost certainly a species of Chrysoperla in the C. carnea group, which has the tip of the hindwing rounded. There are three species known from the Pacific Northwest (C. adamsi, C. johnsoni, and C. plorabunda) that are a solid pale green. Unfortunately, they can only be told apart by their leaf tapping behavior during courtship."
