I ran across [this thread on Roger's site](http://www.flyfishingentomology.com/forum/Replies_Display.php?t=0134) discussing with Kurt the identity of a larva fairly similar to this one. I keyed this one out to Sericostomatidae with the dissecting microscope (although I couldn't really make out the antennae at all), and from there it easily keys to Gumaga. I was uncertain in enough places that I was pleased to get to the end of the key and find cases that perfectly match this specimen.
