Quite A Long One

Limnephilus marmoratus

I have cropped these images in 4:2 ratio to show off the length of this insect. This is a caddisfly called Limnephilus marmoratus. I guess you can’t miss the extraordinarily long antennae. The wing markings are quite distinctive and help in identification amongst several similar species.
