SeasonalityAdults fly from late May to early October. IdentificationMale forewings are red-brown, and brown tinted hindwings. The antennae are red-brown, yellow-brown vertex, and a deep red-brown thorax. Male legs are brownish-yellow and red-brown in females.

SeasonalityAdults can be found in late May to mid-October. IdentificationThe forewings of males are pale golden-brown and fairly irrorate. Antennae are brownish-yellow and the vertex is a yellow-brown. The legs are yellow to pale straw with straw-coloured spurs. The male genitalia is similar to H. vexa, but the lateral membranous lobes of the aedaagus in H. bifida are larger and have a large, stout terminal spine. As well, the tips of the lateral lobes are directed anterad (Nimmo, 1987).

Hydropsyche slossonae

Freshwater Invertebrate Collection

SeasonalityAdults fly from early June to early September. IdentificationMale forewings are grey-brown and the antennae are yellow-brown. Male vertex is brown anteriorly, to pale yellow-brown posteriorly, female vertex is brown with white warts. Thorax is brown, to brownish yellow laterally in males and dark brown, to grey-brown laterally in females.
