Species announced today include 13 amphibians, six amphipods, 17 beetles, three birds, four butterflies, six caddisflies, 81 crayfish, 14 dragonflies, 43 fish, one springfly, two isopods, four mammals, one moth, 35 mussels, six non-vascular plants, 12 reptiles, 43 snails, eight stoneflies and 75 vascular plants, FWS said.
Of the 9 species of caddisflies from the original 404 petition on the Center for Biological Diversity website, the below six are being considered (full list is here).
- Hydroptila sykorai
- Agarodes logani
- Lepidostoma morsei
- Triaenodes tridontus
- Oecetis parva
- Oxyethira setosa
The list includes 44 other insects in addition to the caddisflies (though the silk moth and the butterflies are not /really/ aquatic, they have larvae feeding on plants which are often semi-aquatic). I do appreciate insect conservation minded people in an environmental movement which often focuses exclusively on megafauna.
