Moved from Caddisflies.

Determined to be Culoptila by dissection by Dave Ruiter. No page has been created for this genus yet.

next time you see no page to accommodate your pics pls notify me directly or post a request on this forum (make sure to include pic ##)

I don't know
This one has me flummoxed - you have great pics of just the characters needed to stump me. I am pretty sure it is a glossosomatid female. Size may help alot on which genus. The meso/metanotal setal warts just don't seem to be like any I know from that part of the world. From the looks of it you may have kept it? Would you send it to me so I can look?

I can definitely send it to you, if you want to send me the shipping info, you can email me at jason.eckberg [at] If it helps the only Glossosomatid we have recorded so far in the area is Culoptila.
