A similar caddis found at the same time is posted here:
No interactions present.
I agree with everything you said. I do not run the Irish caddis scheme but I am pretty sure that Jim O'Connor would be unhappy about adding a new Irish species on the basis of a photograph.
Voucher specimens required. If it is just lunatus then a certain amount of thinking and re-definition of the wing markings is required. A very interesting submission, many thanks.

Could you give me some idea of how to get in touch with Jim O'Connor please?
I am very grateful for the feedback. It would be really good to have someone in the know take a close look at one of these, I will attempt to trap a voucher specimen in the coming year.
Its very interesting that you agree with what I have said above.
I just found this image of L. borealis online:
Its virtually identical to my caddis above.
