  • Spatial and temporal variations in the density and diversity of Diptera were studied in a temporary pond in Okomu Forest Reserve, southern Nigeria during January 1988 to December 1989. Twenty six morphologically distinct taxa were identified, of which 14 were chironomids. The dominant taxa were Polypedilum (43%), Alluaudomyia (21%), Culex (11%), Pentaneura (10%) and Chironomus (5%). The overall density of Diptera differed significantly (P<0.05) among the four study stations, which were chosen… CONTINUE READING
