Caddisfly Species Rhyacophila lobifera (Green Sedge)


Where & When

Regions: East, Midwest

Time Of Year (?): May and June

This species is reportedly most common in Pennsylvania and New York.

Egg-Laying Behavior

Gary LaFontaine reports in Caddisflies that adults of this species may gather in tight balls and float along on the surface. I have observed this peculiar behavior in other caddisfly species, and I assume it has something to do with mating.
