Abstract

More than 300 caddisfly (Trichoptera) species have been reported from Michigan (Houghton et al. 2018, Houghton 2020). Starting in 2021, we used UV-lights laid over a pan of 80% ethanol to collect adult caddisflies at five sites along Finch Creek (Antrim County) and at 12 sites on Drummond Island (Chippewa County). Collecting occurred three times in 2021 along Finch Creek (June, July, and September) and twice on Drummond Island (June and September). So far in 2022, collecting has occurred in May at all sites and at Finch Creek in June.
