As John Epler mentioned on the Chironomidae-l listserver (11/22/13), the 2nd printing has some errors different from those in the 1st printing, so I have created this new thread to keep Forum treatments of the two printings separate.

Please find some items that I noticed below, added with respect to the intent expressed by Martin Spies (email to the Chironomidae-l listserver, 11/28/13). Any help in finding references that I was unsure of or explanation of possible misinterpretations on my part would be greatly appreciated.

Differences between 1st and 2nd printings:

Thank you very much, Ron, for this valuable contribution.

As you and I have discussed outside the Forum, I have modified some contents of your post, e.g. to fill in previously missing data, to coordinate with the parallel subject/topic on the manual's first printing, etc.

Please let us know if I have made any mistake, or if you find additional items.

Martin Spies

Please note that Ron's listing for the second printing of the manual has been supplemented with a downloadable PDF file like the one offered in the subject/topic on the first printing.

New update 30 January 2014

The attached PDF file has had to be updated yet again.
