Larva & Pupa Biology

Gary LaFontaine describes the unusual shelters built by these larvae in Caddisflies:

The larva builds a retreat, or dwelling tube, by raising a simple roof or a groove in a sunken piece of wood. The tube is camouflaged with pieces of detritus (Detritus: Small, loose pieces of decaying organic matter underwater.) and a layer of silk.
