The Specimen

Neophylax (Autumn Mottled Sedges) Caddisfly LarvaNeophylax (Autumn Mottled Sedges) Caddisfly Larva View 7 PicturesThe size of the head compared to the body in this larva is surprising, and I think this means it's a fairly early instar (Instar: Many invertebrates molt through dozens of progressively larger and better-developed stages as they grow. Each of these stages is known as an instar. Hard-bodied nymphs typically molt through more instars than soft-bodied larvae.) of something which is going to get a lot bigger, but I'm not sure.

Jason - do you have N.ornatus larvae? The leg coloration on these photos is fascinating. The sa1 setae appear to have a basal sclerite like N.ornatus.
