Hello,
I found this lovely specimen on the siding of my porch this morning. Its now the late afternoon and I can’t blame him/her for resting here during all the heat we’re having. It’s about a total of 2in. long and about 5/8in. in width at the widest point. Very symmetrical flying insect.

Dear Dave,
The reason you noticed a similarity between your Antlion and a Lacewing is that they are classified in the same insect order, Neuroptera.  Based on images posted to BugGuide, we believe your individual is in the genus
Scotoleon.
