I didn't recognise this caddisfly that arrived in my moth trap, and didn't get round to looking at it for a while, hence the poor condition of the specimen, but it appears to be a species new to the county (as far as I can tell - no NBN records and not on the 2006 county checklist). It is a relatively localised species associated with spring-fed streams, of which there are several in the vicinity.
