Two images this evening. The first, about an inch long, (brought indoors accidently on the washing) I have no idea and the second (Captured in Exeter beside a slow running river) I think is an Alder Fly. If you know, I'd love to hear from you! Grin

Hi Karen,
Spot on with the ID of V2 - The short wing veins on the edge of the fore wing are the give away

V1? Could be a variation of Micromus Angulatus

Thank you Adrian, for your suggestion. I'm not totally convinced it is of that family (though one site did say "The genus Micromus is one of most diverse hemerobiid brown lacewing in the world"). All the images I found had see through wings, this one didn't have see through wings (nor where they 'dusty' like a butterfly or moth). An odd creature, it looks like it'll have to stay a mystery!

I think I've found it!!


Quote: The caddisflies are an order, Trichoptera, of insects with approximately 12,000 described species. Also called sedge-flies or rail-flies, they are small moth-like insects having two pairs of hairy membranous wings.

It looks like it's a Caddisfly! Smile

Two cracking close ups of these tiny critters Karen, when I saw your title I thought you'd had the Osmant's round for tea and we were going to be treated to some portraits of Ade and Sue!BlushWinkGrin

Only just fell over these 2 images Karen, but you're right with the ID on both counts. Hopefully now things are slowly getting sorted with the new home our old friendly rivalry in the ID stakes will surface again. Hope all is well in your world, be careful whose over your shoulder when you're out with your cameras now mind, if whoever it is casts an almighty shadow, it just be me! Tongue
Two solid images here btw, regards....Ade Wink
