A comparative study on mouthpart morphology of certain larvae of Chironomini (Diptera: Chironomidae) with reference to the larval feeding habits






Journal of Zoology (London): 2282: 183-204

A comparative study on mouthpart morphology of certain larvae of Chironomini (Diptera: Chironomidae) with reference to the larval feeding habits

Mouthparts of 6 species of chironomid larvae were compared on both an intra- and interspecific level. The species were: Chironomus riparius, Cryptochironomus defectus group, Endochironomus albipennis, Glyptotendipes pallens, Microtendipes pedellus and Parachironomus arcuatus.
