Records of chironomidae larvae living on other aquatic animals in Brazil
Keywords:Chironomidae, aquatic insects, mollusks, fish, ecological interaction, hosts
AbstractIn this study, we report forty-nine cases of Chironomidae larvae living on other animals in Brazilian aquatic ecosystems, including a wide range of hosts, such as hydrozoans, snails, insects and fish. We also discuss some empirical difficulties to establish the ecological interactions between chironomids and their hosts.
