Description

A large six legged insect that has clear wings, long antennae, and a long body. This was found in the afternoon when there was still light. It was found clinging to the patio screen and the lines it is clinging to are the screen fibers. It is about one inch and a half long. It does not react to my movements.

Thank you Mercury Wong to identify this larva of unknown Chrysopidae species (草蛉科), it tends to camouflage with grains or corpse of its preys. In Chinese, the larva is also known as 蚜獅, which mean Lion of aphids or Aphids' Lion.
