The order Trichoptera is one of the sixth largest insect orders with over 16,000 species known all over the world. In India, this order is represented by about 1400 species only. The literature on the caddisflies of India so far has remained scattered and fragmented. This book documents all of the 184 species of one of the largest family of Trichoptera: Rhyacophilidae. It details the taxonomic description of each species along with good-quality figures, provides information on the holotypes for each species, and incorporates a detailed and updated checklist of the caddisfly family Rhyacophilidae in India, the keys for the groups and subgroups, and the generic keys. The methods of collection, preservation, and identification are described with adequate illustrations. This book will be a useful resource for the researchers, insect biologists, professionals, and undergraduate and postgraduate students studying the systematic and ecological aspects of caddisflies, as tremendous efforts are being made around the world to prevent the decline in the population of insects, which provide immensely useful free ecological services in sustaining the biodiversity of the world.

Key features: * First book on Indian caddisflies * Second book on a particular family of Trichoptera in world after The Caddisfly Family Phryganeidae, by G. B. Wiggins (1997, University of Toronto Press) * Contains systematic information about 184 species of caddisflies with remarkable drawings and illustrations * Gives ecological information of caddisflies species * Discusses the conservation and management of caddisfly population
