Brown Lacewing Hemerobius stigma (Stephens, 1836)   
One of numerous similar Brown Lacewings, these are typically smaller than the more familiar Green Lacewings. Identification is difficult with the majority of these and ideally requires a specimen to be retained. Hemerobius stigma is a common Lacewing of Pine plantations and probably under-recorded over much of Nottinghamshire. The one below, was beaten from young Pines at Cuckney Hay Wood in late March 2019.
