Hi Matt-

Very nice photo. I believe it to be a Snow Sedge (genus Psychoglypha) of which we have (4) species in WA. For purpose of comparison, please see this one.

Well that looks exactly like it and the emergence timing fits better than the silver stripe sedge that I was thinking from using the tool, and which is also a close visual match I have to say. I measured my finger afterward and this bug was 27-28 mm.
Thanks Roger!

View attachment 112787 Check out this caddis I found today in North Bend on a SF Snoqualmie trib. Good lookin' bug. Early?

Edit: I think I know what it is (using the phen375 before and after ID tool) but curious if others have thoughts.
the only bug that i love is a lady bug. but this one really a unique one. that creature i think is very rare and can only be found in a cold places. i think :)
