  author={Virginija Podėnienė and J. Gelhaus and Oyunchuluun Yadamsuren},
ABSTRACT Descriptions, illustrations and habitat characteristics are given for the previously unknown larvae and pupae of Tipula (Arctotipula) hovsgolensis T. (A.) caliginosa and T. (A.) quadriloba and pupae of T. (A.) salicetorum. In addition the larval stage of Tipula (A.) conjuncta conjuncta is redescribed. For the first time in Tipula (Arctotipula) microscopic hairs on the abdomen, length of the abdominal tubercles, length of the lateral abdominal setae, the arrangement of hairs on the… Expand
The Last Instar Larvae and Pupae of Mongolian Limnophilinae Crane Flies from Genera Eloeophila, Limnophila and Phylidorea (Diptera, Limoniidae)
Sclerotisation of the spiracular field, arrangement of the sensory structures on the labrum, length of the antennal segments, and number and shape of the mandible teeth are the main characters found to distinguish the larvae of these genera. Expand
An Overview of the Tipulomorpha and Ptychopteromorpha Crane Flies (Diptera) of Mongolia
The investigation of crane flies (Diptera: Tipulidae) in the current territory of Mongolia started in 1880 with specimens collected by G. N. Potanin in north-central Mongolia and has been during the last 17 years with the sampling and research fostered by the joint American-Mongolian Lake Hovsgol Survey and the Mongolian Aquatic Insect Survey.

The Relationship Between Grazing, Erosion and Adult Aquatic Insects in Streams in Mongolia.
Family-level data generated in the Mongolian Aquatic Insect Survey indicated that Trichoptera and Ephemeroptera diversity would be maximized by sampling streams undergoing intermediate levels of disturbance from grazing and erosion, that sampling for the Diptera and Plecoptera diversity will be maximization by sampling channels with less erosion and grazing, and that Diptera richness was impaired by erosion related to grazing in Mongolian streams.

The thesis of this particular investigation was that sex, instar, season, and location of habitat were all factors capable of influencing the food of larvae of T. sacra, and quantitative investigations of larval gut contents with reference to these factors were carried out. Expand

Life budgets for a population of Tipula sacra (Diptera; Tipulidae)
Certain aspects of the life‐history appear to fit the species to life in a temporally unstable habitat, including high fecundity, variability in growth rate, and there is a correlation between larval density and mortality rate. Expand
The larvae of Tipula (Arctotipula) salicetorum Siebke, 1870 (Diptera: Tipulidae)
Arctotipula is the only European subgenus of Tipula with larvae not previously described, and no differences in position of setae and numbers of protuberances were found between larvae of instars 2, 3 and 4. Expand
