ABACHRYSA EUREKA (BANKS) (NEUROPTERA: CHRYSOPIDAE): EGG, FIRST INSTAR LARVA AND BIOLOGICAL NOTES
MetadataShow full item record
Based on museum-held and field-collected specimens new data are presented regarding the distribution, adult phenology and first-instar larva of the uncommon green lacewing Abachrysa eureka. It was found that this species is broadly distributed across the southeastern United States, from Texas to the east coast south to Florida and north to South Carolina. There are multiple short duration emergence periods which vary with latitude. This species appears to be a typical chrysopid in various biological aspects, such as the occurrence of a stalked egg and placement of debris on the backs of larva.
