Excerpt: This family is represented in the Wisconsin fauna by five genera: Hemerobius, Micromus, Sympherobius, Psectra, and Kimminsia, with the possibility that Wesmaelius and Boriomyia may be found with more extensive collecting. Carpenter (1940) has keys for separating the genera and species. I have collected 904 specimens in Wisconsin representing 14 species and have examined 139 other Wisconsin specimens from the collections of the University of Wisconsin, Madison; the Public Museum, Milwaukee: and Carroll College, Waukesha.
