BACKGROUND Over a period of many years, scientists have collected arthropod specimens in the Park. The entire collection is at the Colorado Plateau Museum of Arthropod Biodiversity, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, Arizona.

        Net-winged midges constitute a very peculiar and isolated group of Nematocera, usually separated into a superfamily of their own. Almost species in nearly 30 genera are known from all continents and many islands (Zwick, ). Pre-imaginal stages are attached to submerged stones in swift-flowing water, usually in mountain streams; adults.

However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes. While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species are .

        Young net-winged midges use suction organs so strong that only pulls over times their body weight can detach them. True flies are insects of the order Diptera, the name being derived from the Greek δι- di-"two", and πτερόν pteron "wing". Insects of this order use only a single pair of wings to fly, the hindwings having evolved into advanced mechanosensory organs known as halteres, which act as high-speed sensors of rotational movement and allow dipterans to perform advanced aerobatics.

A midge is any small fly, including species in several families net-winged midges book non-mosquito Nematoceran are found (seasonally or otherwise) on practically every land area outside permanently arid deserts and the frigid zones. Some midges, such as many Phlebotominae (sand fly) and Simuliidae (black fly), are vectors of various diseases.

Many others play useful roles. The Neotropical net-winged midges are the least known of the family, with few fragmentary studies in a few poorly surveyed areas. The Neotropical genera are poorly defined, notably, Kelloggina and Paltostoma are potentially paraphyletic. Identification keys to Neotropical genera larvae and pupae are provided in this chapter.

Net-winged midges (Diptera: Blephariceridae) are a small group of highly specialized aquatic flies. The immature stages are remarkable in their adaptations to and intimate association with torrential streams. Structural adaptations of larvae include six ventral suctorial disks, which function as hydraulic suckers and allow for secure attachment to current-exposed substrata.

Midges are those small, irritating flies that you encounter when camping or walking, particularly near lakes or freshwater systems. The term ‘midge’ does not define a particular type of fly but it is a generic term and may include the following.

Net-winged midges; Gall midges; Biting midges (Ceratopogonidae) Non-biting midges (Chironomidae). Fredrik Sjöberg's book The Fly Trap concerns his enthusiasm for hoverflies on the island of Runmarö in the Baltic Sea. The island is a hotspot for hoverflies and other insects; Sjöberg has collected 58 species of butterflies there, and (in seven years of hunting) species of hoverflies, including in his garden.

Midget is a derived term of midge. As nouns the difference between midge and midget is that midge is any of various small two-winged flies, for example, from the family chironomidae or non-biting midges, the family chaoboridae or phantom midges, and the family ceratopogonidae or biting midges, all belonging to the order diptera while midget is (originally) a little sandfly.

We report on the importance of net-winged midges (Diptera: Blephariceridae) in the diet of three native populations of brook trout, Salvelinus fontinalis (Mitchill). One population, studied mostly during andwas from the Rapidan River, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia.

The other populations, studied in andwere from Trail Creek and North Fork Rock.

Each page tells the story of a different insect, one for every letter of the alphabet. Ages Abstract A method for obtaining reared adults of net-winged midges (Diptera: Bleaphariceridae) is presented.

Rocks with attached pupae are removed from the stream and placed in a container maintained at high humidity. Survival and emergence rates exceeding 60% were recorded for several species of Nearctic Blepharicera.
