Rhyacophila carolina (Green Sedge) Caddisfly Larva Pictures

 This specimens shows that the name "green rockworm" doesn't quite fit all Rhyacophila larvae, even though it does fit the majority. This is actually the first of their larvae that I've found in a different color. I'm not sure if it's because of the species or because this is a young one, but I have found equally small green larvae, so I'm guessing it's the species.

This caddisfly was collected from Mongaup Creek on May 6th, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com on May 18th, 2007.
