Caddisfly Species Distribution Maps are now available for each caddisfly species which has been recorded in a USA state or CAN province.

Roger - Thanks - This will be useful. Have you added records since the Natureserve 2013 update?

Dave-

Yes, I was provided with a full extract on 5/5/2014. It included numerous new species and distributions for the 2014 update, which had not yet been added to the production 2013 database, although they likely have been by now.

Roger,

Now we only need a couple really good pictures of every bug...Could you arrange this? :) Preferably from the bottom, the trouts view, please.

Hi Spence-

Although you obviously asked this question (largely) in rhetorical jest, the answer is probably worth providing, if not for you, at least to educate others who may read this thread.

The answer is no, because the vast majority of caddisfly photos are not identified below genus level. Why is this, one may ask? It is because a macro photo of a caddisfly is rarely adequate for species level identification. In most cases, it is necessary for a caddisfly expert (like Dave Ruiter) to perform a microscopic examination of a preserved specimen for species level identification.
