looks like
This looks like it may be at top view of Kevin's Hydropsyche

I thought about that
and decided against it. Mine seems to have hairier legs and the hairs are black, not orange.

You are right to notice the spiny legs, Lynette. However, it does appear that you and Kevin may have captured different views of the same caddisfly, but not the specimen mentioned above. (See Kevin's side view here).

linking from two diff. people
Is it possible to somehow "link" pictures from 2 diff. people? I'm not suggesting it in this case, as we do not know for sure that you and I have the same individual specimen, but I put the "silly" group picture up and was going to link it to your regular group picture, but couldn't figure out a way to do it.

best thing is to put thumb of it in the Remarks section.
