Review of Species
Ninety-six species and 7 unnamed species of Corynoneura are described in detail with 159 morphological figures and synonyms of each known taxon are listed in chronological order. Expand
A review of the genus Cryptotendipes Lenz (Diptera: Chironomidae) from China
The genus Cryptotendipes Lenz from China is reviewed and two new species, C. nodus and C. parallelus, are described and illustrated from males and the generic diagnosis for males and larvae is emended. Expand
Denopelopia Roback & Rutter from China with emendation of the generic diagnosis (Diptera: Chironomidae: Tanypodinae)
The genus Denopelopia is recorded from the Oriental and Palaearctic regions for the first time and the generic diagnosis is emended. Expand
Zavrelia Bragremia Sp. Nov. from China (Diptera, Hironomidae, Tanytarsini)
The generic diagnosis of the genus Pavrelia is emended to accommodate the new species, Zavrelia bragremia sp. Expand
Demicryptochironomus Lenz from China (Diptera: Chironomidae)
The genus Demicryptochironomus Lenz 1941 from China is revised, and Keys to males and known larvae of the genus are presented and the systematics discussed. Expand

The results supported DNA barcoding as an ideal method to detect cryptic species, delimit sibling species, and associate different life stages in non-biting midges. Expand
DNA barcodes successfully delimit morphospecies in a superdiverse insect genus
Nine species complexes with deep intraspecific divergences indicated 18 potentially cryptic species, which require further taxonomic research including complete life histories and nuclear genetic data to be resolved. Expand
Revision of the orthoclad genus Propsilocerus Kieffer (= Tokunagayusurika Sasa) (Diptera: Chironomidae)
Parsimony analyses of the primitive orthoclads show that either the more plesiomorphic genera of Orthocladiinae form a monophyletic group or Propsilocerus may be more closely related to less plesiomorph groups. Expand
A new species of Manoa Fittkau (Diptera: Chironomidae), with DNA barcodes from Xianju National Park, Oriental China.
The genus Manoa and the tribe Pseudochironomini are recorded from the Oriental region for the first time and the latter associated with the male by standard DNA barcodes. Expand
