Thanks David but the labial

Thanks David but the labial palps seem just too big for footmans as I had thought about them and can't find anything that has this reddish brown scaling.

Also the wings are held more

Also the wings are held more in a roof shape than overlapping.

Trichoptera

It's not somthing like a Caddisfly, is it? They have very long labial palps like this.

Edit: David just beat me to it!

Caddis

A species called Chimarra marginata. The larvae make bag like seive nets to catch floating phyto-plankton carried in fast current. Especially common in lake exit water bodies.

ID

You ought to add the ID, Ian, so that the species appears named on the iSpot carousel.
