Posts: 34This is Neophylax. Was the exuvia actually attached to the case? I'll do some more IDs when I get a chance.

Thanks for the ID. I believe the exuvia actually was attached, but I don't even remember seeing it on the specimen, so I've got to go by the same pictures you're seeing. I do know that with the way I was moving and sorting these guys around, it's unlikely that a piece of light unattached debris would have just settled on the case like that.

For the past few days I have studied your images on the new insects. They are very helpful to me and should be helpful to any avid angler.
I am very impressed with your work (and work it is) and just wanted to say so.

Jason - what do you do with your critters after you take the picture? Is this specimen still available?
