Field Notes
The day we went down to the stream my group and I. We were all looking for a species to post about on vital signs then one of are group members found something that looked like a caddisfly larvae case. We decided to bring it back up to the school to examine it. The group member who found the case decided to open it up because he thought he saw a caddisfly larvae in it. When we opened it we did find the caddisfly larvae in the case.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
In this photo you can see that the caddisfly larva has legs it only has five in this photo due to bad handling in the process of getting it out of its case. It in fact does look like the caddisfly larva.
Photo of my evidence.
In this photo you can see that the caddisfly larva has a 1 inch case which is the normal size for them to have as a case.

In this photo you can see that we did in fact find the caddisfly larva and it is pretty noticeable. You can also see the hard exoskeleton on thorax and top with soft ( belly ) or ( abdomen ).
