Order Neuroptera - The Lacewings and antlions
The aquatic Neuroptera are a very small group restricted to only one family - the Sisyridae. We have only come across one specimen in our collections and it is pictured here. The larvae are associated with fresh water sponges hence the name spongillafly. They feed on the sponges with their stylet like mouth.
