Dear all,

this head capsule was found in a sediment of a man-made reservoir in Slovakia. At first glance we identified it as Psectrocladius but giving it a second look, I see certain similarity with Nanocladius branchicolus... I have never seen the larva of it though. Could someone who is familiar with the species (-type) give me opinion on this?

Keep healthy
