Mystacides longicornis (Long-horned Caddisfly sp.)


This caddisfly (length 6 to 9 mm) is easy to identify due to its striking patterned wings with brown and yellow shaded bars. It has very long antennae and red eyes. 
The typical form has the brown and yellow shaded bars, but there is a less common variety which is a plain yellow form.
The male is distinguised from the female by having large eyes!
