common name     Little Sister Sedge

Warmer flowing waters and can tolerate pollution more than other species of Caddisflies.

Adults fly from early May to mid-October.

Cheumatopsyche species are very similar to Hydropsyche species, however they tend to be smaller and slenderer than Hydropsyche. The adult claws can be deformed in some species. This genus can be found in all continents except South America and the Antarctic. In Alberta, we have 9 of the 24 species known in Canada.
