Description and illustrations for Brachycentrus lunatus, n. sp., from the southern Appalachian Mountains are provided. Intraspecific variation of larval color pattern previously has been noted among populations of the caddisfly Brachycentrus spinae Ross. We found a strong correlation between larval phenotype and geographical distribution. No significant adult variation was correlated with the larval B. spinae phenotypes.
