Semachrysa jade - new lacewing species
Aug 12, 2012

New species. Semachrysa jade, Winterton, Guek & Brooks, 2012.

Semachrysa jade - a new species of lacewing I found in Selangor.

I first saw and photographed this species in the wild in its natural habitat on May 10, 2011. A few lacewing experts came across images of this lacewing I posted in forums and Flickr and informed me that this could be a new species. Luckily, I came across this beautiful species again on Jan 27, 2012. Specimen was captured and sent to Mr. Winterton for description with the help from Mr. Brooks.

Also, if you google "Semachrysa jade", you will get pages after pages of hits!
