The pest is apparently common in Canada and is known to occur in United States, but we’re guessing this is the first time a damaging population has been discovered in Michigan.

Over species in 36 genera have been described in North America, the vast majority of which either feed on other insects or other non-human animals. Most are scavengers and spend 1 to 3 years as larvae. The pupae are aquatic, breathe air, and are a lot like the pupae of mosquitoes.

By Fernand Schmid. Pages Type e-book Published ISBN e-ISBN Book number   Since earning my Ph.D. from Florida State University over 30 years ago, I've been able to make a living by identifying aquatic insects and writing books/manuals on how to identify them.

This work has enabled me to fund my own research describing new genera and species of midges. Appendix 1 lists the genera in context of their known classification and recommends useful publications for the study and identification of gall midges.

Appendices 2 and 3 list and explain general abbreviations and four-letter abbreviations for type collections, respectively. Appendix 4 presents some notes on a few cecidomyiid collections.

Introduction. Gall midges (Cecidomyiidae) constitute one of the largest families of Diptera, with more than described species and many that are undescribed or unknown [].Most of these species are plant feeders in the larval stage, and induce galls, the complexity and morphological diversity of which is rivalled only by gall wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) [], [].

By examination of the polytene chromosome banding pattern of the larvae, it was determined that these midges are Chironomus columbiensis Wulker, Sublette, Morath, and Martin. Adults of this species are very difficult to separate from those of C.

Baldcypress is the first known non-Pinaceae host of Cecidomyia.midges are flies (Order Diptera) in the family Biting Ceratopogonidae, which includes over 4, species in genera worldwide. Over species in 36 genera have been described in North America, the vast majority of which either feed on other insects or other non-human animals.

Spe-cies in only four genera of biting midges feed on the blood.Damselfly larvae (nymphs) are aquatic, slender, usually drab insects, with 6 thin legs, large eyes, and small wing buds on the back of the thorax. The 3 gills are leaflike or paddlelike and positioned in a tripod configuration at the tip of the abdomen (unlike the gills of the related dragonflies, which are hidden within the tip of the abdomen).
