Size: 6 mm
This Hemerobius, presumably stigma, landed on my hand. I captured it, posed it for a photo session, and released it. Length measured in place--to tip of abdomen about 6 mm in a natural pose, about 9 mm from head to tip of wings. I was able to get some good macros, and in this photo, the antennae were in one plane, so you can see their structure from base to tip--beaded, i.e., moniliform, I believe.
This sort of macro on a white background really shows sensor dust, so I have removed that on the background, but not altered the insect any.
