Wesmaelius subnebulosus (Stephens, 1836)   
One of a number of Lacewings which are typically smaller than the more familiar Green Lacewings. Identification is difficult with the majority of these and accurate identification is unlikely to be achieved from photographs and must be keyed out. As with all Lacewings, Wesmaelius subnebulosus is another much under-recorded species in Nottinghamshire. The one below, was recorded at Market Warsop in April 2019.
