Nice set of caddisfly identifications, Lito! Help me out with this one. To my layman's eye the shape of the wing indicates Hydropsychidae as the probable family, and the color of the body (absent a size reference) suggests that Cheumatopsyche is the likely genus.

What other cues do you see? Keep in mind that my out-dated Internet Explorer overprints half of the pictures I'm seeing. Thanks.

Thanks for all the help! I just went through them all and updated the specimens to fit the IDs you gave.

Gonzo -- Are you using Internet Explorer 5.something still? (You can check by going to the Help menu at the top of the window and selecting "About Internet Explorer.") You should really upgrade!

IE5 is a nightmare for web designers because it renders some things differently. It's really a nightmare even to make a web page like this play nicely with the different up-to-date browsers. IE5 is a whole other level of hell from a web programmer's standpoint, so I decided not to mess with it. I checked my stats and less than 1% of my visitors use it.

Anyway, that's a very off-topic rant. If you'd like some help upgrading send me a private message and I can point you to the right downloads.
