Uncertain / Unpublished / Re: A new strange head capsule form Guatemala
« Last post by Martin Spies on April 19, 2017, 04:09:07 AM »
Dear Laci,

Your hypothesis of placement in 'Pseudochironomini' looks sensible, and the mentum reminds me of the second "major type" of Pseudochironomus larvae discussed and illustrated in John Epler's (2001) identification manual for the U.S. Carolinas (please see page 8.137 there).

One useful test may be to check whether the mandibular seta subdentalis is on the same (dorsal) side of the mandible as the seta interna, or on the opposite (ventral) side.

Cheers,

Martin Spies

Uncertain / Unpublished / A new strange head capsule form Guatemala
« Last post by Laci Hamerlik on April 19, 2017, 03:08:23 AM »
Dear all,

This head capsule was found in the littoral sediment of lake Las Pozas, Guatemala. In my opinion it could be a Pseudochironomini, however, the genus name is a mystery to me. Do you know what is it? Also, if you dont but you know something about its ecology (you might have collected it), please let me know.
Thanks,
Laci

Uncertain / Unpublished / Re: Mystery chironomid - C America
« Last post by Martin Spies on April 10, 2017, 04:49:45 AM »
Dear Laci,

In my view clearly a Goeldichironomus - either completely new or a species the larva of which has not been associated.

Note that Reiss (1974 in Studs Neotrop. Fauna 9) wrote that the larval mandible was strongly wrinkled dorsally in all species of Goeldichironomus known to him at the time, but in your species the wrinkles look even stronger than on Reiss specimens from Brazil I just looked at. For example, G. fluctuans Reiss has very similar mentum and ventromental plates, but the mandible is different also on the medial edge, on which the mola does not project to far medial of the proximal inner teeth as in your photograph.

Uncertain / Unpublished / Mystery chironomid - C America
« Last post by Laci Hamerlik on April 08, 2017, 11:55:32 AM »
I have found this head capsule in surface sediments of some C American lakes (Guatemala and Salvador). The ventromental plates are Goeldichironomus-like, the mentum resambles a bit some Caulochironomus... The mandibles are quite unique, dorsally and laterally bearing strong tubercles, seta subdentalis is strong and comb-like as in Goeldichironomus. The (4th) proximal inner tooth of the mandible is reduced.  If you have any idea what it could be, please, let me know!

Thank you!
Laci
