Author: Courtney, Gregory W.;

Date: 1998

Source: Proc. Entomol. Soc. Wash. 100(4), 1998, pp. 742-745

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: A method for obtaining reared adults of net-winged midges (Diptera: Blephariceridae) 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 Blephaecera. This method is ideal for associating pupae and adults of blepharicerids and other torrenticolous flies.

Keywords: net-winged midges, Blephariceridae, rearing, pupal-adult associations
