Green Lacewing Dichochrysa species

The larvae of some of the Green Lacewings are very special, for the camouflage themselves. They have long and stiff hairs all over their body and on these they put the skins of victims sucked dry. After some time they are all covered and go about unnoticed. They don't do this in order to get their prey (aphids hardly move about at all), but to deceive the protectors of the leaf lice: the ants. In our parts camouflaged lacewing larvae belong to the Dichochrysa genus, comprised of 5 very similar species.
