Edward Topsell, The History of four-footed beasts and serpents, Londres, E. Cotes,  1658, p. 943.

Phryganides comes front the little worm Phryganium (whichin English is called Cados worm) living in the waters, and in the midst of August ascending to the top of superficies of the waters ; it hath four wings of a brown colour, the body somewhat long, having two short horns, the tail forked, or rather bristles coming out of the tail. The form or figure of this Fly is various, in regard of the great variety of those little Cados worms where of they come.
