      True flies are insects of the order Diptera, the name being derived from the Greek δι- di-"two", and πτερόν pteron "wing". Insects of this order use only a single pair of wings to fly, the hindwings having evolved into advanced mechanosensory organs known as halteres, which act as high-speed sensors of rotational movement and allow dipterans to perform advanced : Insecta.

      Chironomid definition is - any of a family (Chironomidae) of midges that lack piercing mouthparts.   The dipteran family Chironomidae is the most widely distributed and frequently the most abundant group of insects in freshwater, with rep resentatives in both terrestrial and marine environments. A very wide range of gradients of temperature, pH, oxygen concentration, salinity, current velocity, depth, productivity, altitude and latitude have been exploited, by at least some chironomid .

[Donald R Oliver; M E Dillon; P S Cranston] -- A catalog of the taxa of Chironomidae recorded from the Nearctic region, with information on their distribution and relevent literature.

The Chironomidae (informally known as chironomids, nonbiting midges, or lake flies) comprise a family of nematoceran flies with a global distribution. They are closely related to the Ceratopogonidae, Simuliidae, and species superficially resemble mosquitoes, but they lack the wing scales and elongated mouthparts of the example of mosquito-resembling species is Class: Insecta.

Revision of the Nearctic Species of the Genus Polypedilum by Maschwitz and Cook. Proceedings of the 13th International Symposium on Chironomidae; Identification Manual for the Larval Chironomidae (Diptera) of North and South Carolina by John Epler.

Chironomidae is by far the largest family and most ecologically diverse of all the aquatic insects, with the number of aquatic species surpassing that in any other aquatic family.

The larvae, which are recognized because they usually have an anterior pair of prolegs (Plate A,B, Fig. ) are diverse in form and inhabit all types of permanent and temporary aquatic habitats.

Goeldichironomus is a genus of midges in the family are about 14 described species in : Insecta. Recent publications on the systematics of Chironomidae including: keys to the Pentaneurini and Harnischia (Chironomini) com- plex of Florida by Beck and Beck ( andrespectively); "A Classification of Nearctic Chironomidae" by Hamilton, Saether, and Oliver (); reviews of type specimens of Chironomidae housed in five North American.

Two new species of chironomid midges (Rheosmittia arcuata and Mesocricotopus loticus ) are recognized.

They may easily be missed in collections due to their small size, and difficulty in collecting from the larval microhabitat (sand substrates for R. arcuatalow order streams with depositional substrates including gravel, sand, and silt for M. loticus ).Cited by: 2. The book is divided into three sections - the first covers taxonomy, morphology and biogeography (note - the only keys in this book deal only with subfamilies); the second biology, behavior and ecology; the third section covers interactions with humans.

This catalogue to the taxa of Chironomidae recorded from the Nearctic region is based on data published until the end of It includes valid genera and valid species. Information on the distribution of each species, synonyms and relevant literature is given.

An attempt has been made to list all published names, whether deemed to be valid or by: together with detailed descriptions and ecological notes on the discussed taxa.

Since the book now includes more taxa from the southern Nearctic and eastern Palaearctic it is also more widely applicable than the version of the key.

Taxonomy of Corynoneura Winnertz (Diptera: Chironomidae) is a useful resource for researchers and practitioners in the field of entomology, systematics, phylogeny, biogeography, biodiversity, and ecology. This book is composed of four main sections: introduction, keys, classification, and zoogeography.
