This AIDGAP identitification guide covers all caddis larvae found in Britain and Ireland.

Intended for use in the field, larvae are keyed to species level where this is possible using features visible with a hand lens. Other larvae are keyed out to genus.

Caddis larvae are very familiar aquatic insects but only a few of the 198 British and Irish species feature in popular guides. The challenge for this AIDGAP identification guide was to produce keys that use features visible with a x10 hand lens, and enable identification to some level of accuracy for any caddis larva collected in the British Isles.

AIDGAP produces simple and clearly written identification keys, aimed at non-specialist users from age 16+. The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
