The second record of ectoparasitic Chironomidae on Trichoptera from Japan, Polypedilum (Cerobregma) kamotertium Sasa, 1989 (Insecta, Diptera, Chironomidae, Chironomini)
Studies on the immature stages of Polypedillum kamotertium Sasa from northern Japan suggest that larvae are ectoparasitic on the prepupae/pupae of Hydropsyche orientalis Martynov and Cheumatopsyche sp.(p). A description is offered for the larva, pupa and adult female of P. kamotertium, with a redescription of adult male. Biology and distribution of chironomid are also given.
