About this book

The FBA first published a Key to Adult Males of British Chironomidae by Dr Clive Pinder in 1978 (SP 37). This completely new edition is the result of more than ten years of painstaking collaboration between Drs Peter Langton and Clive Pinder. Peter is widely acknowledged as the foremost expert on identifying the pupal stages of chironomids in the British Isles and, like his co-author he is also an expert on the adults.

This publication identifies males of 591 species from the British Isles, compared with 439 species in the 1978 key, an increase of one-third.

To accommodate the increased number of species, the authors provide nearly 1400 individual linedrawings arranged in 276 text-figures. A list of the 140 genera covered by the keys is provided for guidance and orientation when working through the numerous keys to genera and species, and an index also acts as a comprehensive checklist for species where adult males have been recorded from the British Isles.

Published in 2 Volumes including a special supplement identifying sixteen species recently recorded from Britain and Ireland.
