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> en-US <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> (Torbjørn Ekrem) (Torbjørn Ekrem) Tue, 28 Mar 2023 19:35:31 +0000 OJS 60 First record of Parochlus kiefferi (Garrett, 1925) in a sediment sequence from a Slovak mountain lake with notes on paleolimnological interpretation <p>Subfossil larval remains of a rare Podonominae, <em>Parochlus kiefferi</em> (Garrett, 1925), were identified in a sediment sequence from a mountain lake in the Low Tatra Mountains, Slovakia, and represent the first record of the species for Slovakia. The depth at which the <em>P. kiefferi </em>remains were found, along with the taxonomic composition of the corresponding chironomid assemblage dominated by cold-stenothermal taxa, indicate that the sample can be dated back to the Little Ice Age. Additionally, notes on the chironomid remains which appear in the sediment sample are provided here and can offer further insight into paleolimnological interpretation.</p> Martina Jambrović, Dubravka Čerba, Ladislav Hamerlik Copyright (c) 2023 Martina Jambrović, Dubravka Čerba, Ladislav Hamerlik Tue, 28 Mar 2023 00:00:00 +0000 The pupa of Chironomus decorus Johannsen, 1905 – additional description and an unusual sexual dimorphism <p>In his original description of <em>Chironomus decorus,</em> Johannsen included a brief description of the pupa but with insufficient detail to differentiate it from other North American species, particularly those of the decorus-complex. In this note, further information of pupal characters, mostly derived from specimens reared from egg masses, are given which allow separation of these pupae from those of some other species, e.g., presence of frontal warts, and in the case of the males, to permit accurate identification by the presence of a small secondary tubercle.</p> Jon Martin Copyright (c) 2023 Jon Martin Wed, 20 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000
