Notes on Marine Midges from the Eastern United States (Diptera, Tendipedidae [= Chironomidae])
Abstract:The attention of invertebrate zoologists and seashore collectors is invited to the opportunities afforded by the Clunionine midges as materials for general distributional and ecological studies. As an example of distributional problems in this group, Telmatogeton japonicus Tokunaga, a midge previously known only Japan and Hawaii, is recorded from New York and Florida. Descriptions and figures are given of the immature stages of Thalassomya bureni Wirth, with brief notes on the biology of this species in Florida.
