Since Higler published his list of extinct and endangered caddis flies species in 1995 a number of new and rare species were recorded for the Netherlands. These new findings can be partly attributed to the growing interest among researchers to study caddis flies, which has resulted in a more thorough investigation of certain water types. Other records of rare species were discovered by collecting and identifying pupae and adults, such as Hydroptila vectis and Oxyethira falcata. Some rare species, which have not been recorded since 1950, are common nowadays, possibly caused by the improved water quality of the river systems in the Netherlands. Other new species to the Dutch fauna are the result of new taxonomic insights.
