I found this floating in a casserole dish in my sink today. I just can’t pinpoint it! I recently found a masked hunter adult in my house and am on edge about all our six legged and more friends.

Dear confused,
This Caddisfly in the order Trichoptera is perfectly harmless.  Adult Caddisflies are sometimes confuse with moths which they superficially resemble.  Caddisflies have aquatic larvae known as Caseworms because they build shelters.
