  title={Neuroptera of Northern South America (Part III)},
  author={Nathan Banks},
Los Chrysopidae de la America del Sur comprenden un gran numero de especies, algunas de las cuales son muy comunes y de amplia distribucion. Debido a la bondad del prof. R. C. Smith de Kansas State College, quien tomo datos de los tipos en las colecciones europeas, es que el autor emprendio la ardua tarea de tabulacion. Este estudio incluye a todas las especies venezolanas, conocidas hasta la fecha y la descripcion de varias especies nuevas.
