Green lacewings, insects of the family Chrysopidae, are found across much of the globe.
The family Chrysopidae consists of a large number of species that stand out among predators because of its prevalence in coffee crops, with Chrysoperla externa (Hagen, 1861) (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) being the most common (Carvalho and Souza 2000).
