Retro ... as soon as that picture came into view ... I saw a Mandrill.  Vicious primates that I would NOT want to meet in the wild.

Last night's bugs and bourbon. White Miller X-Caddis.  size 16 dry fly hook, tan Darlon shuck, tan laser dub body, light barred ginger hackle, bleached early season elk wing.  And, as usual, great inspirational work everyone.

Nice pattern. Occasionally I see a white moth get pounded, this would imitate one well.

Thanks. I agree that it'll do as both a caddis and moth pattern

I was in the process of doing an inventory of flies I tied but had not bagged and tagged them yet when I came across these flies. I tied these flies sometime between late 2019 and the present. 
I honestly don't remember which of the many books I have on salmon & steelhead flies they came from or if I found them on a website on the world wide web.
It must have been a senior moment or CRS (can't remember shit) syndrome.
