The Chironomidae (Diptera) of Georgia (USA)

Welcome to the Chironomidae (Diptera) of Georgia (USA), a checklist of chironomid midges based on published literature records and specimens examined by the author, B. A. Caldwell.  A number of manuscript names from various sources, such as Labrundinina sp. 10 Roback, Tanytarsus sp. F Epler, etc. have been utilized for species not formally described (mostly larvae).  Please feel free to offer comments, suggestions, corrections or additions to the checklist.  My contact information is bacaldwell(at)mindspring(dot)com.  Many of the records below are based on adult males, but other life stages are also included.  This listing replaces those found for Georgia in Hudson et al. (1990) and Caldwell et al. (1997).  This site was totally reconstructed and updated July 3, 2013 and continues to be updated periodically.  Please note that a few genus placements in the revised "Holarctic Larval Keys," recently published, are not yet incorporated into the current list.

The date of establishment of this checklist was October 28, 2004.
