Rhyacophila (Green Sedges) Caddisfly Pupa Pictures

This was a neat, rare view into a Rhyacophila caddisfly just beginning to pupate, with the features of the larva still clearly visible inside.

This caddisfly was collected from Mystery Creek #199 in Washington on July 28th, 2019 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on July 30th, 2019.
