The Neuroptera of the highlands and escarpments of Angola and Namibia
Keywords:Angola, escarpments, highlands, lacewings, Namibia, Neuroptera
Of the 17 families of Neuroptera (lacewings) worldwide, ten families represented by 148 species have been recorded from Namibia, and five families with 36 species from Angola. In Namibia, 17 endemic species are known, of which two are known from high-elevation escarpment localities. However, very few surveys dedicated specifically to Neuroptera have been carried out in Namibia and none in Angola, so it is therefore not possible to assess the importance of the highlands and escarpments to Neuroptera. Recommendations are made for further surveys and research.
