The journal also serves as an updated news bulletin for the Chironomidae research community. The journal has one issue per year, but articles are published online continuously after they are accepted. The journal is open access, and can be downloaded freely from this website. All research articles submitted to CHIRONOMUS<em>&nbsp;Current Reseach</em>&nbsp;section are subject to peer-review.

Bastardo Viktor Baranov <p><em>Petalocladius dominiensis </em>Andersen &amp; Baranov sp. n. is described and figured based on an adult male collected in the Ebano Verde Scientific Reserve in the Dominican Republic. The new species can be separated from its only congener, <em>P. setosus</em> Sublette &amp; Wirth, 1972 from Jamaica, as it is slightly smaller with about 115 dorsocentrals compared to 56 in <em>P. setosus. </em>The inferior volsella is broadly subtriangular, while more lingulate in <em>P. setosus, </em>and the gonostylus has a small, but distinct megaseta and a subapical brush of spine-like seta, which apparently lack in <em>P. setosus.</em> The generic diagnosis is emended including the new species, and the systematic position is briefly discussed.</p> 2024-03-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Trond Andersen, Amelie Höcherl, Annui Malla Sanz-laParra, Ruth H.
