Caddis fly

Not all that enters a moth trap is lepidopterous. Caddis flies are very common but few are as distinctive and attractive as this one. It might take a little while to get an id.

Edit: Many thanks to Geoff et al for assistance in tracking down the id of this beast. Only a minority of adult caddis can be identified from photos.
