caddisfly - Banksiola crotchi

caddisfly - Banksiola crotchi
Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
June 26, 2007
Size: ~15mm

a spelling correction for the species page--crotchi.

With all these Latin names, I'm surprised there aren't more misspellings.

I know what you mean
Fortunately, nobody is asking us to pronounce them! :)

They call these giant casemakers, but it's not unusual to get small ones like this. It looks like Banksiola crocthi.
