Below is a working checklist of Mount Desert Island's caddisflies. Please send corrections and updates to info@vfthomas.com. Photographs are welcome. Thank you.

Taxonomy to the genus level and phylogenetic order to the subfamily level follow the Trichoptera World Checklist (http://entweb.clemson.edu/database/trichopt/index.htm, most recently accessed on 21 December 2008), "a project of the successive International Symposia on Trichoptera, with the responsibility for its policy and maintenance assigned to the Trichoptera Checklist Coordinating Committee".

Notes:
   1. On the map in Procter (1946), only what is now known as Little Long Pond (in Seal Harbor, town of Mount Desert) was labeled "Long Pond". The other pond known today as Long Pond (towns of Mount Desert and Southwest Harbor) was labeled "Great Pond".
   2. The "Great Heath" in Procter (1946) is the area near Northeast Creek in Bar Harbor, not the heath in the southern portion of Southwest Harbor.
