The chironomid midges Diptera Chironomidae of the River Elz - a contribution to the limnetic fauna of the Black Forest Die Zuckmuecken Diptera Chironomidae der Elz - ein Beitrag zur Limnofauna des Schwarzwaldes

The river Elz has its origin in the Black Forest and is later flowing towards the Upper Rhine floodplain (Southwest Germany). The chironomid fauna was investigated in the year 2003 by using chironomid pupal exuvie. 158 species were identified. Corynoneurella palludosa, Krenosmittia halvorseni, Orthocladius marchettii and Pseudorthocladius berthelenmyi were recorded for the first time for the German fauna; another 30 species arc new for the Baden-Wurttemberg fauna. In the upper course of the river Elz the community is characterized mainly by crenal and rhitral taxa. Further downstream additionally potamal species are found. The study proves an example for the suitability of Chironomidae for the classification of streams.
