Dear Laci and all,

I strongly suspect a species of Polypedilum potentially related to the Nearctic P. braseniae. I have photographs of larvae with such menta from two countries in the western Palaearctic: The Netherlands and Turkey. As always in such cases, it is possible that the biological species already has a scientific name based on another life stage, but that the larva remains to be associated.

Dear all,

this Chironomini was found in the gut content of a goby in the Bulgarian strech of Danube. Do you have any idea what it could be?

Thank you
