Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of tribus, genera and species of the Tanypodinae relevant to the discussion of general ecology, tribus, genera and species of the Tanypodinae, instar iii and iv larvae of Tanypodinae, and general aspects of the systematics and biology of Tanypodinae, the keys and all the available information about the biology and ecology of Chironomidae larvae from the literature and own observations. Chironomidae larvae play an important role in aquatic ecosystems and are used by water authorities in the assessment of the quality of their water bodies. The larvae of most of the species are free-swimming or crawling predators while those of other species burrow in the mud on the bottom. Since they inhabit a variety of habitats, they can be found in almost all surface waters in the Netherlands.
