Limnephilidae
This is Clostoeca disjuncta. See how much better you can see characters in cleared material? When you remove the parts try and remove and clear the entire abdomen. Its usually easy to separate the abdomen from thorax at the 1st abdominal segment. This also preserves most other useful characters on other segments of the abdomen. These other characters can be very useful in other groups and females.

When you have the rest of the abdomen to grab onto it also makes it much easier to handle during flushing, examination and photography as well as less likely to lose the parts during storage.
