 Neu·rop·te·ra prop. n. pl.  Zool. An order of hexapod insects having two pairs of large, membranous, net-veined wings.  The mouth organs are adapted for chewing.  They feed upon other insects, and undergo a complete metamorphosis.  The ant-lion, hellgamite, and lacewing fly are examples. Formerly, the name was given to a much more extensive group, including the true Neuroptera and the Pseudoneuroptera.
