The Micromus variegatus is an insect from the brown lacewing family, Hemerobiidae. It has a long slender body, long antennae and veined wings, may have brownish spots.
Some lacewing larvae hold debris (including the bodies of their victims) on their backs with hooks or bristles. This camouflage allows the lacewing larva to surprise its victims and also protects it from enemies.
