CHIRONOMUS Journal of Chironomidae Research https://www.ntnu.no/ojs/index.php/chironomus <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.

Changania choui Tseng, 1965 belongs to Thienemanniella Kieffer, 1911 (Diptera: Chironomidae: Orthocladiinae) https://www.ntnu.no/ojs/index.php/chironomus/article/view/4596 <p>The midge <em>Changania choui</em> Tseng, 1965 (Insecta, Diptera, Nematocera), originally described in the family Cecidomyiidae and recently transferred to the Ceratopogonidae, is recognised as an adult female in the Chironomidae, subfamily Orthocladiinae. The type material is missing, and the published description and illustrations are limited. Although the genus name <em>Changania</em> Tseng, 1965 becomes a new junior synonym of <em>Thienemanniella</em> Kieffer, 1911, <em>Thienemanniella choui</em> (Tseng 1965), new combination, should be treated as a <em>nomen dubium</em>.</p> Martin Spies, Art Borkent, Peter S.

Each is described as <em>Nilotanypus haplochelus</em> new species and <em>Nilotanypus ctenochelus</em> new species respectively. Morphological differentiation is stronger in the larva and pupa, with adult stages less well differentiated, as seems usual in the genus. Both species are distributed widely across the Australian continent, but seemingly absent from offshore islands and Tasmania. A tendency towards lotic psammophily (sand-dwelling) is evident, with sympatry at some tropical / subtropical locations. Additional molecular data from non-Australian taxa indicates that <em>N. ctenochelus</em> is sister to all other sampled taxa and <em>N. haplochelus</em> to an undescribed species from oriental China. Review of all stages of several non-Australian species requires revised generic diagnoses, and, critically, recognition of <em>Pentaneura comata</em> Freeman 1953 as synonymous with the type of the genus, <em>Nilotanypus remotissimus</em> Kieffer 1923 (new synonym).</p> Peter S.
