Two collecting trips of two weeks each in 2012 and 2013 to the Greater and Lesser Caucasus region in the Republic of Georgia increased the species list of Neuroptera for Georgia from 32 to 63 species. Most of the 31 species new to Georgia were found in the family Chrysopidae, largely because several new species of that genus have been described in the last 20 years. While the southern slope of the Greater Caucasus is inhabited mainly by species also known in central Europe, the Great Plain and the Lesser Caucasus regions harbor species more typical of southern Europe. With Mantispa styriaca and M. perla, the first species of the family Mantispidae were recorded in Georgia. We estimate that only about half of the neuropteran species living in Georgia have been recognized so far.
