  1. The ID looks good to me, but I'm definitely no expert regarding these critters. They are delightfully fuzzy though! Posted 18 days 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 18 days ago
      1. Perfect! I hope you get some good feedback there. Posted 17 days 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 17 days ago
          1. Patience is never easy ;P Posted 16 days ago
            1. ID confirmed. The long antennae on the specimen below seem to be a bit of a problem - possibly an aberration(!)
