Here, i prey types are mosquito larvae, chironomid
, and tubificid worms.
In experiment 6, 2 bored tips (1 in each of 2 treatment containers) were found to contain a single chironomid
larva, apparently accidentally introduced into the containers as a result of a pipetting error.
Chironomus larvae formed the majority of the chironomid
biomass, especially in the meta- and hypolimnion.
Seasonal abundance and life cycles of chironomids

Adult emergence of chironomid
midges can occur at nuisance levels in areas surrounding urban and suburban aquatic habitats (see Ali 1996 for review).
Apart from the mosquito immatures, the sewage drains are natural habitats for the chironomid
immatures and tubificid worms.
The larval specimens examined were cohabiting the pail with larvae of another chironomid
, Dicrotendipes sp.
Almost certainly it is the unidentified tanytarsine reported by Fish (1976), who found it to be the most abundant chironomid
In June and July, chironomid
larvae and adult insects become more important, and smelt of 6.
paripes predominating on soft, organic sediments in the deeper, central portions of Lake Yale (Lake County) that contained substantial amounts of larval chironomid
paripes populations in lakes with organic sediments containing significant levels of chironomid
fecal pellets would have a dramatically different distribution pattern that this model would not accurately forecast.
