Oecetis pratelia Denning

Little Meadow Long-horned Caddisfly (Oecetis pratelia 

This species was described in 1948, it known only from the city of LaBelle, Florida, where it was found on the Caloosahatchee River drainage.  

It was described based on a single adult male alone, which appears to be very similar to another species, the Inconspicuous Long-horned Caddisfly (Oecetis inconspicua (Walker)), and both could potentially be misidentified with each other.  

The Little Meadow Long-horned Caddisfly may be extinct, but this is rather unlikely.
