Phenology of some chironomid species (Diptera, Chironomidae) of the Middle Urals

Andrey B Krasheninnikov


Flight period results of chironomid species from the Middle Urals are grouped into eight categories. Six different peaks of chironomid flight activity during the year are established, namely: early-spring, late-spring, July, late-summer, early-autumn and winter. The flight periods of chironomids from the Middle Urals and southern Swedish lakes are compared.
