Hello there,

I found these three species of Chironomidae in my archive. I would like to know which species they are. Due to the color patterns of the body segments I hope they may be identified.

Thanks a lot in advance!

I think the last one is a Microtendipes, though the black tip of the abdomen is usually more extensive than it appears to be in yours.

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
