I was hoping somone might offer an ID on this Caddis. Approx. 25mm long excluding antennae . Collected two days ago in Manitoba Canada on a large river system. I looked at Lafontaine's Caddisflies and elsewhere with no definitive luck.

cheers Will

This looks like Nemotaulius to me, but please await a second opinion as that is strictly a guess.

Yes - this is Nemotaulius hostilis

Many thanks I was surprised to see such a large caddis this early in our season.
