Caddisfly

Wondering why there is no facility to agree with my Identification of this photo,it is not that implausible.

There is an agree button when

There is an agree button when other people look at it. I don't think you are allowed to agree with your own identification.

(I don't know caddises well enough to have an opinion on your id. beyond agreeing it is plausible.)

ID

Hi Paul

I cant speak for others I agree its a Caddis Fly but I dont know myself what species it might be

Since your ID was a possibility I agreed with what I knew was certain and with the first observation - Well thats my logic at least . The good news is that if you are absolutely right someone with that knowledge will come along and of course agree and your identification will become top of the pops :-)
It may even be a few weeks from now Hope This helps Keep snapping there is a jungle in our Great British Countryside

Best wishes

Limnephilus

I believe that there are a couple of species of Limnephilus that have the crescent shaped mark at the end of the wing. You are certainly right of the genus though.

lunatus

I would say with confidence that this is Limnephilus lunatus. The other species with crescent shaped markings are only known from Highland Scotland, and in any case are considerably less common.
