    Luke, I think you get the non-prize. I couldn't figure out the lack of gills on the body until I just read that they crawl out of the river in winter to pupate inside of a cocoon they build somewhere on shore.

    The diving beetle larvae looks pretty good, but the body seems to taper the opposite direction.

    I noticed this too, but I DID find pictures of them with the body not tapering as drastically.

    Closest thing I can find is a caseless caddis. These spin nets which funnel food.

    The leg positions look the same, differences in the mouth parts.

    upload it to a image hosting service like photobucket, then copy the URL link to the photo so you can embed it on this page.
