Hi Jes, It looks like it

Hi Jes,

It looks like it might be a Limnephilus caddis but wait for further responses from others. Do you have any closer images and possibly a side view?

The case looks typical for 1

The case looks typical for 1 but I'd need a closer look at the actual animal.

Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.
