If you've still got it, could you take a pic with it in the water, under a bright light but without the flash? Getting in closer if possible would also help a lot.

It's really hard to make out the important details of nymphs or larvae out of the water. Caddis larvae look as strange dry as a cat does soaking wet.

Nice try, anyway. You did a fine job of extracting the little bugger from its case without damage.
