1. The filter feeding of four species of leaf-mining chironomid larvae with and without functional haemoglobin was studied at different oxygen concentrations. 2. Two red species, Glyptotendipes pallens and Endochironomus dispar , showed at low oxygen concentrations a reduced amount of filter feeding after treatment with carbon monoxide (to render the haemoglobin functionless). The blood pigment is therefore of significance to these larvae in increasing the amount of feeding possible at low… Expand
