Chapter Summary

This section presents an overview of characters, setation, ligula and measurements in the matrix tables, keys to the instar iii and iv larvae and prepupae of Tanypodinae, and provides some comments on the wide-headed larvae and elongate-headed larvae. The pseudoradula can be bent or even curled at the tip. In keys to the pupae the thoracic horn is an important feature. In many cases it is possible to identify species of the Tanypodinae by examining the thoracic horn. In some genera the shape of the thoracic horn differs very little between species. In such case it is only possible to identify the genus. Conchapelopia aggregate is defined by the characters mentioned in the key under 36a and includes the genera Arctopelopia, Conchapelopia, Rheopelopia and Thienemannimyia.

Keywords: Conchapelopia aggregate; ligula; prepupa; pseudoradula; setation; Tanypodinae larvae; thoracic horn
