***Oecetis

This common name refers to only one genus.

Caddisfly Genus Oecetis

These are often called Long Horn Sedges.
Trout may feed selectively on caddisflies of this widespread genus. Their lengthy antennae give them the common name Long-Horned Sedge, although that's also a good description of the rest of the Leptoceridae family.
