Description

This bug was found on kudzu on the bluff. It is similar to a caddisfly, but lives on land. I have seen this on my balcony, at the beach, and a hand railing. It sticks to whatever it is on but can be seen moving frequently. Maybe it is in the trichoptera or manophylax group. I have been trying to identify it exactly but haven't had any luck.

Description from Wikipedia

The caddisflies are an order, Trichoptera, of insects with approximately 12,000 described species. Also called sedge-flies or rail-flies, they are small moth-like insects having two pairs of hairy membranous wings. They are closely related to Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) which have scales on their wings, and the two orders together form the superorder Amphiesmenoptera. Caddisflies have aquatic larvae and are found in a wide variety of habitats such as streams, rivers, lakes, ponds, spring seeps, and...
