Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
The Caddisfly that our group found is most similar to a caddisfly larvae.We ruled out another similar insect called the Case Building Caddisfly which looks similar but is very different. Which has gills and a a case. A Caddisfly larvae does not have gills yet
Photo of my evidence.
At the end of the abdomen has two long hooks which rules out it being any type of moth larvae.

Most of the caddisfly build cases, the caddisfly larvae that our team found was in a case.
