Caddis fly?

About half a dozen of these were attracted to our garden room lights last night. They are smaller than the normal caddisflies we usually get.

Cockermouth Caddis

Genus Hydropsyche whose larvae spin capturing nets in flowing water. Examination of genitalia required for identification of these adults.

Very common at light and fly some distance from their breeding site.
