The only difference, surely, is the ampage of the fuse. I've run lights indoors from plug sockets for years with no problems, but you might want to stick with the lower rating for outdoor applications ...

There are many species of lacewing - I'm guessing that there is variation in the type of egg and stalk. If you get a good snap, may I send it to my former colleague who is quite likely to know?
