Some say caddisflies are even more important than mayflies, and they are probably right. The angling world has taken a while to come to terms with this blasphemy. Caddis imitations are close to receiving their fare share of time on the end of the tippet, but too many anglers still assume all caddisflies are pretty much the same.
Caddis species actually provide as much incentive to learn their specifics as the mayflies do. There is just as much variety in their emergence and egg-laying behaviors, and as many patterns and techniques are needed to match them. Anglers are hampered only by the relative lack of information about caddisfly behavior and identification. Read more...

Congratulations. You are embarking on what should be a very interesting and rewarding career.
In your profile, you indicate that you are doing a project on aquatic insects as environmental indicators. My first suggestion is that you cease worrying about the proper pronunciation of scientific names, as that is unlikely to be a key component of either your learning, or of your grade.
My second suggestion is that you have clearly written project expectations before starting any fieldwork. Getting a shared understanding of project expectations on the front end is the primary key to success of any project.
Once that is in place, I would recommend developing list of each individual task you will need to perform; establishing their dependencies upon one another; estimating the amount of time each will take to perform; developing a schedule for their performance.
Does any of this make sense to you?

Sounds good. How many species of caddisflies do you have in India?
