Looks very much like one but the wings have me puzzled, a bit to rounded at the trailing edges or tips. Think Size approx. 10mm Very Happy




(Image data same for both images)
Canon EOS 20D
Manual mode
1/125 sec. @ f/11 ISO 100
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
Canon 430EX ETTL Speedlite @ -1/3, off camera w/Novoflex bracket
PP: Photo Impact 6 Very Happy

Nice photo as far as aesthetics are concerned , but for IDing purposes I´d rather like to see some other details more clearly. Wink
But I think it´s save to say that the order is Neuroptera and not Trichoptera.Very Happy

Gee you really know how rain on a parade, huh Betty? Laughing So...well, I took your suggestion and Googled all over the place and came up with; "Neuroptera: Hemerobiidae," or in other words besides latin, (is all that latin Question ), a "Brown Lacewing." I didn't know there were brown ones. Think

Thanks Betty Very Happy

Yep that's the critter. I had not thought of Bugguide but Bettys suggestion paid off. Wink I have a small creek that runs in behind the house, about a 100yds away maybe, so that is where the Caddisfly assumption came from. Actually I have never investigated the creek that much for the presence of aquatics, maybe I should one day.

Thanks Rik Very Happy
