Hey just found this bug on my wall. Couldn’t find anything on it, first thought it was a fly then a dragonfly but noticed it had long antenna which I didn’t see on other dragonfly pictures. completely stumped on this one.

Hi Chris,
This is a Green Lacewing and it is sometimes called a Goldeneye.  This is a common beneficial insect that consumes large quantities of aphids as both a larva and an adult.  Adults are frequently attracted to lights.
