This lacewing species is unidentified. It is reported as Chrysoperla carnea in popular books but C. carnea is known to be a species complex of morphologically similar species and is not present in the Mediterranean. This species may be Chyrsoperla mediterranea or Chyrsoperla agilis. Proper identification requires song comparisons at low frequencies.
