New caddisfly on Texel – 01/12/29

Another new species for Texel. After the Megachile ligniseca bee which a few weeks ago was in the news, there is now a new discovery, a caddisfly. The newcomer was found in the Ploeglanden, part of the National Park Dunes of Texel. …

The new caddisfly has been found in the summer of 2011, however, this week it was announced that it is a new species for Texel, Leptocerus tineiformis. In the Netherlands there are 180 different species of caddisflies, 31 of those are now confirmed to live on Texel. The discoverer, researcher David Tempelman, expects that in the dunes of Texel still some more species may be found.
