Goeridae larva

Goeridae larva
Mistissini, Nord-du-Qu├ębec County, Quebec, Canada
Size: 7 mm
I noticed there is a strong lack in the guide for Goeridae; I thought this guy would be a good addition.

This is a larva. They are rather easy to recognize with the lateral blade-like processes on the second thoracic segment, combined with spines on the first thoracic segment. That should be Goera (no clue which) - it seems like this is the lone genus in the Northeast anyway (according to Merritt & Cummins), and the gills (hardly visible on these pics) match.
