This caddisfly was collected from Mystery Creek #62 on April 1st, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com on April 3rd, 2007.
This picture came out poorly, but it still shows pretty well just what effective tools those rear prolegs are for caddis larvae to grip the rocks. It can be surprisingly hard to pick them up when they're grabbing onto something.

I've found some sedge larva (?) in a small stream in Wales, living in small tiny, tiny pebbles, like a tunnel! I do recognize the head and legs and would love to know a little bit more about them! Some also had sticks glued to the pebbles, looking like grasshoppers that's drowned! I shall look forward to hearing from you on my e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org - Thanks Helene MillsReplyinsect help 21 Replies »

Interesting to learn that Jason collected R. fuscula April 1st. My hatch chart for the East Branch Delaware needs to be corrected, as I had R. fuscula hatching much later. Schweibert mentions this insect on p.83.ReplyRyacophila on spring? 8 Replies »
