The aquatic drift patterns of black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae)

  title={The aquatic drift patterns of black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae)},
  author={Peter H Adler and Robert W. Light and Ke Chung Kim},
Larval (5th-final instar) drift patterns of five species of black flies (Prosimulium mixtum, Stegopterna mutata, Simulium tuberosum FG, S. vittatum IIIL-1, and S. vittatum IS-7) were analyzed. The diel drift patterns were not species-specific, but consistently exhibited a marked increase after sunset, preceded by a period of minimal drift. The drift minimum generally occurred during or shortly after the period of maximum water temperature. Larvae showed significantly more nocturnal than diurnal… CONTINUE READING
