The wide distribution and large tolerance to physical-chemical factors makes it possible to use caddisflies as bioindicators. This article aims to present a list regarding the caddisfly species (in the larval stage) in Aninei Mountains (Romania). The samples were localized along 3 hydrographic basins (Bârzava, Caras and Nera) and 20 species have been identified. The most frequent ones were Potamophylax latipennis and Sericostoma personatum. The presence of each one of them has been correlated with the altitude, so the results of this paper are integrated in the ones described in literature.
