This was on the inside of our screen door. My best guess is that it is in the order Neuroptera, family Coniopterygidae, but I could be way off. It was about 4 mm long, not including antennae, so larger than the textbook description of Coniopterygidae. I didn't get great photos (or a physical specimen).

Description from Wikipedia

The insect order Neuroptera, or net-winged insects, includes the lacewings, mantidflies, antlions, and their relatives. The order contains about 6,000 species. The group was once known as Planipennia, and at that time also included alderflies, fishflies, dobsonflies and snakeflies, but these are now generally considered to be separate orders (the Megaloptera and Raphidioptera). Sometimes the name Neuropterida is used to refer to these three orders as a group. This is either placed at superorder rank, with...
