Lacewing larva

Lovely shots. Pretty sure that's going to be a Neuroptera (lacewing) larva.

Yes, the same here, Laurie. I don't even think this is a scale insect, these mandibles reveals a predator. The anatomy refers to Neuropteran larvae.

Thanks guys, much appreciated. I thought those mandibles reminded me of something but I didn't know lacewing larva covered themselves in stuff, I've seen them running about 'naked' before. Apologies for my terrible IDing skills! ;)
Interesting post Laurie
