There is a problem with width of head to thorax that says these are Owlflies. The mouthparts have prominent maxilla, as do Owlflies.
The overall look of these is a stocky version of a lacewing.
That says Owlflies.
From my college text.

These are a curiosity to me, too.

And I don't subscribe to bug guide.
Anyone?

Then it is from a species of green lacewing, and from the looks of the link from BG they are of a kind where the larvae carry debris on their back. That makes sense since the hatchling larvae have extra long curly hairs.

Too many points for lacewing to argue. These still look a bit beefier than the little beasties hiding in flowers.
There are a lot of this form of Neuropteran larva living on tree trunks with lichens and moss. They use debris for camo and are predacious.
I lived at the edge of a damp woodland and it was all mossy and shady.
Mushrooms, good wild eating were there. Some good, some delicious.
Look for insects?
Get a chair, sit and watch. Look for movement. No hurry. Camera ready?
A cold one to help the wait.😋

a-yup, me too............after checking where the sun is and how its going to affect the shot, I put on kneepads as I often end up kneeling anyway, and just chill and watch for movement, and something out of place.........I also lift branches, stems, leaves and look underneath while noticing any holes chewed edges etc

for spiders the web will often give their location away, orbs usually have a trigger line running to where they are hiding under leaves, in likely places I'll scour the ground looking for past victims, several times they've pointed to jumpers nest above.............
