  1. The ID looks good to me, but I'm definitely no expert regarding these critters. They are delightfully fuzzy though! Posted 2 months ago
    1. Thanks Christine. I'll ID them both as such for now ... we have some fairly good Trichoptera specialists on waarnemig.nl so I'm hoping they'll have a look at it too. Posted 2 months ago
      1. Perfect! I hope you get some good feedback there. Posted 2 months ago
        1. Hmmm, the specialist has been there and IDed a different Oxyethira flavicornis for someone else, but didn't answer to my question (yet) ... maybe he didn't see or he wants to check about the antennae issue I raised ... Patience son, patience ... :o) Posted 2 months ago

            1. ID confirmed. The long antennae on the specimen below seem to be a bit of a problem - possibly an aberration(!)
