Incidence and causes of deformities in recently hatched larvae of Chironomus riparius Meigen, 1804 (Diptera, Chironomidae)



Incidence and causes of deformities in recently hatched larvae of Chironomus riparius Meigen, 1804 (Diptera, Chironomidae)



Archiv fur Hydrobiologie 149(3): 387-401



The occurrence of head capsule deformities in first instar larvae of Chirononomus riparius was studied under field and experimental conditions. These larvae were obtained by collecting egg masses from two polluted sites in Galicia, Spain, as well as from cultures of 4th instar individuals from these two sites. Fourth instar larvae from the two populations were screened for deformities, and frequencies ranged from about 10-14%.
