King’s Cream and Brown Mottled Microcaddisfly (Oxyethira kingi)

 

King’s Cream and Brown Mottled Microcaddisfly was described in 1983 based on a single specimen, a male that had been collected in 1964 at a plant inspection station in the city of Miami, Florida, USA.

The species has never been found since and is thought to be extinct; however, it may well turn out to be identical with another species of its genus.
