I collected this at a blacklight illuminating a sheet in a courtyard garden about 200 meters from the Schuylkill River in Center City, Philadelphia.

Moved from Caddisflies.

Perhaps Ceraclea but not sure


Moved from ID Request.

to have your images noticed by the experts and get IDs faster, post all caddis-, stone-, and mayfly pix to the respective order pages rather than to ID Request; please refer to this forum thread for more recommendations
