Just after sorting, the larvae were isolated in small vials in order to be sure about the associations. The vials stayed open and as soon as the larvae became pupae, the larval exuviae was fixed and the pupa transferred to a larger container with a lower superficial tension (provided by the superficial area) so they could emerge. The vials suggested by EPLER (1995; 2001) and by MERRIT, RESH & CUMMINS (1996) weren’t efficient for most of the chironomids I’ve tried unsuccessfully to rear.
