Chironomus usenicus Loginova, Belyanina, 1994 Diptera, Chironomidae a species cytotaxoinomically identified from Kortowskie Lake, Poland



Polish Journal of Natural Sciences 20(2): 959-969



The cytotaxonomic characterization (external morphology of larvae and adults, and karyotype) of Chironomus usenicus from Poland is presented. The karyotype of this species is characterized by chromosome set 2n=8. Cytogenetically it belongs to "thummi" complex with chromosome arm combinations: AB CD EF G and its larva belongs to plumosus type. The population examined is distinguished from other European populations of C. usenicus by its monomorphism as well as by fixed homozygous inversions in arms A and D. The reasons for the monomorphous characters of C. usenicus karyotype are discussed.
