      With the intention to verify whether the dimensions of other structures beyond the length of the head capsule from ventral view assist in the identification of larval instars of Chironomidae, we endeavored to determine the instars of Chironomus sancticaroli using morphometric measurements of the antennae, mandibles, mentum and ventromental plates. Larvae of the tribe Tanytarsini occur in nearly every aquatic habitat in North America where they act as primary consumers in the food chain. This new taxonomic guide overcomes some deficiencies in existing keys to this tribe and the reviewed and updated taxonomy enables identification of the larvae that may be useful as ecological indicators.

      Chironomidae Explained. The Chironomidae (informally known as chironomids, nonbiting midges, or lake flies) comprise a family of nematoceran flies with a global distribution. They are closely related to the Ceratopogonidae, Simuliidae, and species superficially resemble mosquitoes, but they lack the wing scales and elongated mouthparts of the Culicidae.
