I took lots of pictures of this large caddisfly hoping one of the caddis gurus here can identify it to a more detailed level than I. I was able to follow the key in Merritt & Cummins through to Phryganeidae, though I might have made a mistake.

Posts: 2It is not Limnephilidae, I guess it is some of Neophylax or other Thremmatinae. My reasons:a) color pattern look as in many Neophylax; at the base of hind leg spurs the only one black spine (in Limnephilidae - two sines; in Thremmatinae - 0 or one); 2) female genitalia is not as in Limnephilidae s.str.
