I have no idea what this bug and or insect is, but it looks like it’s covered in mold or fungus that grows on trees.
It was found on the deer stand in the woods. What is it? (Georgia)
Lacewings larva are great predators on aphids and other insects.
This is a lacewing larva that covers itself with lichen as camouflage.
This allows it to get into aphid colonies “undetected”. This was discovered by biologist Thomas Eisner
Adult lacewings are also great predators and good to have in the garden.
Don’t forget to look at all sides of the insect, especially the underside of a lichen that moves.
And then send more information about the insect, such as size, color of actual insect, habits, distinquishing characteristics like type of legs, antenna, pinchers, etc.
