Monitoring deformities of Chironomus riparius Meigen, 1804 (Diptera, Chironomidae) larvae from first to fourth instar: a potential tool for investigating their origin



Monitoring deformities of Chironomus riparius Meigen, 1804 (Diptera, Chironomidae) larvae from first to fourth instar: a potential tool for investigating their origin



Archiv fur Hydrobiologie 154(3): 447-460



We monitored changes in the morphology of the mentum and mandibles of Chironomus riparius Meigen, 1804 larvae over the entire larval development process. Larvae were reared in isolation in individual tubes containing clean water. Head capsules of each instar were collected just after moulting and mounted on microscope slides.
