Neuroptera

Lacewings / Antlions / Dobsonflies / Alderflies / Snakeflies

The name Neuroptera is derived from the Greek word "neuron" meaning sinew and "ptera" meaning wings.  The modern English translation "nerve-wings" is appropriate because it alludes to the extensive branching found in the wing veins of most Neuroptera.
