Xenochironomus canterburyensis (Diptera: Chironomidae) an insectan inquiline commensal of Hyridella menziesi (Mollusca: Lamellibranchia)
Larvae and pupae of the chironomid Xenochironomus canterburyensis (Freeman) are recorded for the first time. They are inquiline commensals of the fresh water mussel Hyridella menziesi (Gray) in Lake
On the biology of Symbiocladius rhithrogenae (ZAVREL, 1924) (Diptera: Chironomidae) from the Chornohora Mts., Ukraine
A metamorphosis of a parasitic chironomid Symbiocladius rhithrogenae (ZAVŘEL, 1924) infesting nymphs of mayflies of the genera Rhithrogena EATON, 1881 and Ecdyonurus EATON, 1868 in a stream of the
On the evolution of commensalism in the Chironomidae
TLDR
Commensalism is widespread among the Chironomidae and association with large-sized hosts is thought to make the chironomid commensal less vulnerable to a variety of freshwater predators which are in general gape limited.
First Australian record of Chironomid larvae Epizoic on larval Odonata
Epizoic larvae of Rheotanytarsus sp. (Diptera, Chironomidae, Chironominae) were found on larvae of Austroaeschna atrata Martin (Odonata, Aeshnidae, Brachytroninae) from two sub‐alpine mountain
The zoogeographical distribution of Chironomidae (Insecta : Diptera)
TLDR

Less than a decade ago it was possible to state that “for the amount of work that has been published on the ecology of Australian rivers and streams, limnologists outside Australia might well be
Association between a commensal chironomid and its mayfly host in rivers of North Westland
TLDR
Host location and the ability to either remain on a host or reattach rapidly following moulting of the host are identified as critical times in the life cycle of the midge.
