Psilotreta labida (Dark Blue Sedge) Caddisfly Larva Pictures

This caddisfly was collected from Fall Creek on March 30th, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com on April 2nd, 2007.

I like how the green of this larva's body shows through the slightly translucent sand grains of its case.  Psilotreta labida (Dark Blue Sedge) Caddisfly Larva from Fall Creek in New York

I added several new bugs I collected this week to the site tonight, including this caddisfly. Anybody care to ID it?

To view all the new specimens, go to any page of this site outside the forum section (like the homepage) and look under "recent updates" in the left column.

I'll be adding some even better bug pictures tomorrow from a collecting trip a couple days later.

Jason-

My guess would be Psilotreta or another Odontocerid.
