Green Lacewing Cunctochrysa albolineata (Killington, 1935)  
Lacewings (order Neuroptera) are common insects, with many of these being colloquially termed as being 'Green Lacewings'. The larvae are not usually quite so obvious, although some make themselves more conspicuous by adorning themselves with the skins of their Aphid prey. The adults are nocturnal, but commonly disturbed from foliage during the day and are regularly attracted to outside lights.
