Eurycnemus sp. (Diptera: Chironomidae) ectoparasitic on pupae of Goera japonica (Trichoptera), newly recorded in Japan

Eurycnemus sp. (Diptera: Chironomidae) ectoparasitic on pupae of Goera japonica (Trichoptera), newly recorded in Japan

Japanese Journal of Sanitary Zoology. December 15; 444: 401-404

The larvae and pupae of Eurycnemus sp. were found in the prepupal and pupal cases of G. japonica collected in the Nishiki River in Iwakuni City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan. The morphological characteristics of the chironomid larvae and pupae were almost identical with the description of E. crassipes by D.A. Murray & P. Ashe (1981) (Entomologica Scandinavica, 12: 357-361). The present observation appears to be the first report of a chironomid species which is parasitic on Trichoptera.
