The type of case or use of silk for a web depends on the species. Two gut analysis techniques, (1) frequency of occurrence of particular prey in the guts, and (2) the relative … New species of Hydroptilidae (Trichoptera). Neotropics (de Moor & Ivanov, 2008). Rhyacophila attacked equal numbers of both prey types during the experiment. Campodeiform larvae do not have these. 2014. Review and redescription of species in the Oecetis avara group, with the description of 15 new species (Trichoptera, Leptoceridae).
