Found itself in my kitchen - presumably attracted by light? Thanks to Barry.
No interactions present.
Going by appearances it looks good for one of the Limnephilus species. It's a large genus with various sized species but they tend to have a common shape throughout the genus. Many are IDed by markings but this one above seems to be little marked, possibly through age/wearing. The glossy wings may suggest a worn insect. L. flavicornis has glossy almost transparent wings and is a possibility but the forewings are showing some damage and it might be hard to bring this one to species.
That's extremely informative.
Just realised I may have caused confusion - an aquaintance (Barry) helped with the ID so I was thanking him here! oops
Within a short period of time and within a mile or so I recorded another Caddisfly, which I will upload too.
Feel free to look at my ongoing (hopefully improving) collection of pictures on Flickr:
A joy to look through Mac, where is Rydal water? I thought it was going to be Ullswater, similar landscape. Really great photos throughout. Too many to mention but there's a great clear snipe in there and the 3 synchronised gannets is nice also. That appears to be a nicely coloured Twin-spotted Quaker with its chestnut hues?
Very kind Cathal. Hopefully as my 'signature' says - I think a detectable improvement over the years, although I have also been a little more discerning exactly what I put on. Rydal Water, to be honest that's so long ago I'm not sure I can remember. Given the time (2006) it's most likely to be in the relative vicinity of Keswick, that's the best I can do!
No worries, I thought you had signed off as Barry in your ID. Barry could be spot on if he's suggesting the species cannot be determined by appearances alone in this case, the insect does seem to be quite damaged but it appears to be the correct shape for one of the Limnephilus, there are quite a few of them.
