Caddisflies

Hello
I thought I would post some caddisflies as they turn up in the moth trap on occasion. Here are three, Limnephilus lunatus which appears most regularly. Anabolia nervosa which I cant recall having seen before, and Mystacides longicornis, also known as the ‘Grouse Wing’ Caddisfly or Longhorned Caddisfly. The antennae seem to be missing from this specimen.
