Caddisfly - Holocentropus flavus

Caddisfly - Holocentropus flavus
Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
June 7, 2009
Size: 5.5mm

This one is half the size of the other Polycentropus flavus. Could it be that one of these is something else?

Looking at
the photos now, this one is OK, but the other looks like a leptocerid.

might be Polycentropus flavus. Hard to go between a photo based on a dry specimen, and a specimen in alcohol. det John Weaver.
