Rhyacophila (Green Sedges) Caddisfly Pupa Pictures

 I collected this pupa and several like it from the same stream and on the same day as this larva. I suspect they're the same species. Every pupa I collected was in a brown casing like the one shown in one of the pictures below. I cut this pupa out of its case after a picture so you can see more details. It is close to but not fully developed.

This caddisfly was collected from the Long Lake Branch of the White River on June 5th, 2005 and added to Troutnut.com on May 25th, 2006.
