( Figs. 28—34View FIGURES 28 ― 32View FIGURES 33 ― 36)

Larva: Total length 16.0— 16.5 mm (n = 10). Overall, body shape as usual in Hydropsychidae  ( Fig. 28 View Figure ). Head and notal sclerites brown to dark brown.

Head: Head capsule length, 1.22—1.26 mm; width, 1.20—1.22 mm. Dorsum of head dark brown with yellow stripe on midline ( Fig. 29 View Figure ). Areas around eyes light brown, muscle scars below eyes ( Fig. 29 View Figure ). Dorsal and lateral portions of head covered with long, black, truncate peg setae and with tapered setae in anterior 3/4ths ( Fig. 29 View Figure ). Frontoclypeus with anterior margin strongly convex medially, with yellow stripe on midline ( Fig. 29 View Figure ). Frontoclypeus covered uniformly with truncate peg setae and tapered setae. Ventral surface of head brownish, posterolaterally with group of muscle scars ( Fig. 30 View Figure ). Labrum brown; apically rounded in dorsal view; bearing well-developed, golden brown, pectinate, lateral setae and long, stout, dark, dorsal setae ( Fig. 31 View Figure ). Mandibles dark brown, asymmetrical: left mandible with 2 apical teeth and 3 mesal teeth, right mandible with 2 apical teeth and 3 mesal teeth and with deep excision between middle and basal mesal teeth, outer surfaces of both mandibles with scattered setae ( Fig. 32 View Figure ). Submentum brown, with deep anteromesal cleft, anterior margins on either side of cleft with long setae ( Fig. 30 View Figure ). Anterior ventral apotome broadly triangular; posterior ventral apotome small, oval ( Fig. 30 View Figure ).

Thorax: Nota dark brown ( Fig. 33 View Figure ) covered with setae similar to those on dorsum of head. Prosternite brown, transverse, narrow, with dark band centrally; with pair of large, posterolateral sclerites ( Fig. 35 View Figure ). Foretrochantin deeply forked ( Figs. 28 View Figure , 34 View Figure A). Forelegs stouter than other legs, each with femur widened dorsally in middle and with long setae on ventral margin ( Fig. 34 View Figure A). Mid- and hind legs similar in size, shape, and structure; with dense setae on mesal surfaces of coxae through tarsi ( Figs. 34 View Figure A, 34B). Mesosternum with one pair of single-stemmed gills and metasternum with 2 pairs of single-stemmed gills; gills each bearing approximately 58 lateral filaments.

Abdomen: Abdominal segments with dense brown, scale hair setae in various sizes ( Fig. 28 View Figure ). Sternum I with 2 pairs of bifid-stemmed gills. Segments II— V each with one pair of median gills. Segments II— VII each with one pair of lateral gills arising from common base ( Fig. 28 View Figure ). Sternum VIII with pair of small, triangular sclerites bearing spike-like setae. Sternum IX with pair of large, triangular sclerites. Tergum IX with small lateral sclerites ( Fig. 36 View Figure ) and pair of large dorsal sclerites. Anal prolegs each with bent claw, spike-like setae present on dorsal and ventral surfaces ( Fig. 36 View Figure ).
