Tiny Black Gold Speckled-Winged Caddisflies
This common name refers to only one species.
These are pretty much always called Tiny Black Gold Speckled-Winged Caddisflies.
What a weird species
is Dolophilodes distinctus
. It emerges year-round, and the female adults in the winter do not have wings. In the summer they do, and in the spring there is a mix.
This is the most important species of Dolophilodes
in the East and Midwest. It is never an intense emergence, but it may be present at times of the year when nothing else is available.
