A red eyed fly/moth with black wings folded over rear of body. The body length is approximately 16mm and banded antenna extend a further 25/30mm. It seams to have overly thickened legs adjacent its head. The insect was found in Hedgerows adjacent Chesterfield Canal so i was wondering if it could be some sort of caddis fly?
