  • M. Catherine A. Madder (a1), David M. Rosenberg (a2) and Allen P. Wiens (a2)

Extract

Formation of cocoons by larval Chironomidae has been reported in Endochironomus spp. (Sæther 1962), Hydrobaenus pilipes (Malloch) (as Trissocladius pilipes) (Hudson 1971), and Parakiefferiella sp. (Hudson 197 1). This is the first report of larval cocoons formed by a species of Eukiefferiella.
