Number 7434.     This appears to be a larva of a lacewing (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae). These are general predators on other small invertebrates, mostly other insects. For reasons unknown, they occasionally will ‘sample’ human skin, but their bite is harmless to humans. See lacewing detailed information .
