Established earlier / Review of Doncricotopus: Need to trace a specimen!
« Last post by anamayan on September 21, 2018, 07:20:04 AM »
I have recovered several mounted specimens of Doncricotopus at Canadian national collections that provide an opportunity to revisit and revise the genus in the Holarctic. So far Dr. Andersen was very kind enough to return the type specimens of D. bicaudatus to Canada. I also have the type specimens of D. dentatus from Finland.

However, there seems to be another undescribed species altogether in the Nearctic (described only as larvae). In my past investigation of the Chironomidae of Athabasca River I encountered a Doncricotopus larva, very much like displayed larva in ChiroKey (2010) of Dr. Cranston, from Lake Superior. Dr. Cranston has informed me that specimen came from Dr. Hudson's backyard which Dr. Hudson informed me it was not so. I could not find it in UC Davis entomology collection's database either.

I would appreciate it if anyone knows the whereabouts of this specimen or where it is likely deposited. I need to compare it first to my Alberta specimen and second to D. bicaudatus to confirm whether it is likely a new species or variation of D. bicaudatus. This will help me greatly with description of larval stage and construction of a key.

If anyone has collected similar larvae from Lake superior, I'll be happy to receive them as well.

Trento 2017 Symposium Proceedings / General remarks
« Last post by Martin Spies on June 05, 2018, 03:05:15 AM »
The editors of these Proceedings have announced that the first of the papers to be included are being posted on the journal website (https://www.jlimnol.it/index.php/jlimnol/issue/view/64).

Please NOTE, however, that the items being posted at this time are preliminary versions only. The first page of each paper carries a publisher's note that reads: "This article has been accepted for publication and undergone full peer review but has not been through the copyediting, typesetting, pagination and proofreading process, which may lead to differences between this version and the final one. Please cite this article as doi: ...".

Unfortunately, I have had to inform the editors that this practice of publishing non-final versions is decidedly counter-productive. For example, the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature - for very good reasons - does not accept such preliminary versions as 'real' publications.

Consequently, please keep in mind that those early versions of Proceedings papers should be used for personal information only; they should not be distributed or cited as if they were final, unchangeable scientific publications.
