one night i saw what looked like a ball of fluff walking in my room.
I garbed my macro lens and discover it was actually some kind of insect, bearing corpses of other insects. It measure between 5mm long and look a bit like an ant.
Your image is awesome. This is one of the best images we have ever received of a debris-carrying Lacewing Larva.
Thanks for the kind words and the identification. 🙂
It is indeed a lacewing larva. Do you know wich region of the world it can be found ? I saw pictures from Europe and America. Seems like a quite common insect, but it is the first time i saw one of those.
Apparently there are debris-carrying Lacewing Larvae in many parts of the world, including Australia.
