    I'm not good at identifying lacewings, so hanging out for Ken's book :-) Hopefully I got this one right. It's been 2 years since we've seen an Antlion, and suddenly 2 on one night. Came to our night light. A very distinctive dark patch on the rear wing. Again a small specimen at about 23mm. The claws on this one more proportionate to it's size, but still 2 pairs per leg. Cheers Brett
