The flight tones generated by wing beat frequencies of adult female and male non-biting midges,Chironomus anthracinus, infested by a species ofLimnomermis are very similar (mean values 219.9 and 228.9 Hz respectively), intermediate between normal females (205.1) and males (363.1), but closer to that of the uninfested females. Similarly, the wing shape of parasitized individuals appears intermediate resembling the female more than the male. Statistically wing width and surface area in the… Expand
