*** The single pupal exuviae available (1991) - seems to best fit Neozavrelia.  The thoracic horns are similarly shaped but apparently without minute apical teeth/spinules and the darkened anal lobes exhibit the characteristic minute dorsal teeth - but have only three filamentous setae confined to the posterior margin.  An apparently similar pupa has been noted (not examined by me - Neozavrelia NA 2) in an as yet unpulblished work on Nearctic chironomid pupal exuviae (P. H. Langton, pers. comm.).  (Note added January 18, 2004)
