Head (specimen 1, 3rd instar):
Seta S1 is a little difficult to see because of the 3-dimensional shape, but it is divided and not a single seta. Please correct me if I'm off here.
Premandible (specimen 3)
It's more like a member of Orthocladius (Euorth.) or Orthocladius (Meso.) sp based on my experience on the mandible.
Might this be Cricotopus salinophilus? I'm not sure.
