Caddis Fly

Caddis Fly, the popular name of the family of phryganidce, neuropterous insects with broad and parallel-veined wings, and long antennas. The larvas live at the bottom of ponds and streams, in cases made of bits of wood, grains of sand, small stones, shells, etc, cemented together by the secretions of the animal, and lined with silk; this protects the larvas, which can put out or draw in the head as occasion requires. They drag the case along with them, whether crawling, swimming, or at the surface; they load one side to keep it down with great dexterity. The half-banded caddis fly (neuronia fasciata, Say) is about an inch long, of a tawny color, with an expanse of wings of more than 14 inch.
