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, 07 May 2019 20:08:28 +0000 OJS 60 First record of Demicryptochironomus (Irmakia) neglectus Reiss, 1988 in Slovakia <p>Here, we present the first record of <em>Demicryptochironomus </em>(<em>Irmakia</em>) <em>neglectus</em> Reiss, 1988 in Slovakia. Samples were taken using the Chironomid Pupal Exuviae Technique (CPET) from two reservoirs. Two pupal exuviae (out of the 500 ind. collected) were recorded in Kráľová reservoir and in one individual was found in Sĺňava reservoir (out of the total 514 ind. collected). Since the CPET method mostly allows species level identification of chironomids, its usage is helpful in discovering the real chironomid diversity of Slovakia. Moreover, it helps to define ecological requirements of species we have little information about, such as the present one.</p> Veronika Štillová, Soňa Ščerbáková ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 07 May 2019 20:07:26 +0000 Descriptions of two interesting chironomid pupae collected in Yunnan Province, China (Chironomidae: Chironominae) <p>Descriptions of two Chironomini pupal types collected in Yunnan Province are given. Among known genera, both types closely resemble that of the North American <em>Hyporhygma</em> Reiss, 1982, but the spine and spinule pattern of the dorsal abdomen does not fit within the current taxonomic boundaries, and represent an endemic component in the Oriental region. A new genus description is expected when associated adults are available.</p> Jinxing Wei, Hongqu Tang ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 25 Jun 2019 06:01:57 +0000
