CHIRONOMUS Journal of Chironomidae Research <p>The CHIRONOMUS Journal of Chironomidae Research is devoted to publishing peer-reviewed research articles related to all aspects of chironomid research. 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. There are no page charges for manuscripts accepted for publication.</p> Norwegian University of Science and Technology en-US CHIRONOMUS Journal of Chironomidae Research 0172-1941 <p>Authors who publish with this Open Access journal agree to the following terms:</p> <ol> <li>Authors retain copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a&nbsp;<a href="" target="_new">Creative Commons Attribution License</a> 4.0 that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgement of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal.</li> <li>Authors are able to enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgement of its initial publication in this journal.</li> <li>Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) prior to and during the submission process, as it can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work (See&nbsp;<a href="" target="_new">The Effect of Open Access</a>).</li> </ol> A new species of Petalocladius Sublette & Wirth, 1972 (Diptera, Chironomidae, Orthocladiinae) from the Dominican Republic, with an emended generic diagnosis <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> Trond Andersen Amelie Höcherl Annui Malla Sanz-laParra Ruth H.
