Hello all. Please can someone tell me what species this is. Thanks Peter
It is a species of caddis fly.
It is a shame we can't see the tip of the wing.
Going on what we can see, it could be:
- Glyphotaelius pellucidus (3 dark dots at the margin of the tip of the forewing)
- Limnephilus lunatus (a pale half-moon towards the tip of the forewing, which we can see half of))
- Limnephilus rhombicus (a vaguer pale half-moon)
Of those, the first is not quite right in other ways.
And of the other two, Limnephilus rhombicus looks the better fit.
Sorry, for that late reply. Thank you Mike for the ID of the Caddis Fly, I have looked, but do not have better photos of this species.
