The Green Lacewings (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) of Papua Indonesia

The distribution of most species is insufficiently known. Therefore the species list below consists of New Guinea species in general (including those from Papua New Guinea). Species listed in grey are not (yet) found in Papua Indonesia or the exact locality is unknown, though some may be discovered in the Indonesian part of New Guinea in the near future too.

Listed New Guinea species: 19
