{{InsectSection |name=Phylocentropus |order=Trichoptera |family=Dipseudopsidae |genus=Phylocentropus |image=File:Phylocentropus.jpg |link= |text=Phylocentropus larvae build forked tunnels in soft sediments. We frequently collect them in Mississquoi Bay. Their tibia are uniquely flattened and the claws are very much reduced by comparison to other caddisflies. They also have a unique pointed mouth part that sticks straight forward out of the underside of the head.
