I saw and photographed two Mantispids on two different milkweed plants. I have recorded images at other times posted at URL: http://www.bio.umass.edu/biology/kunkel/butterfly_walk/2006/mantispid.html

Wikipedia notes: Strictly speaking, the term "antlion" applies to the larval form of the members of this family, but while several languages have their own terms for the adult, there is no widely used word for them in English. Very rarely, the adults are called "antlion lacewings".
