Benthos specimens were collected by hand mud scoop from 21 localities in Gökçeada during each field work, between 06-28.07.1991 and 06-10.08.1999. Specimens were collected from every kind of habitat as possible (e.g. lakes, ponds, dams, streams and troughs). As a result of this study 53 species of 34 genuses were determined from subfamilies Tanypodinae, Orthocladiinae and Chironominae (Chironomini and Tanytarsini) of Chironomidae family. 35 of the 53 species that were determined are new records for the larval Chironomidae fauna of Gökçeada. 25, the species number described in previous studies in Gökçeada, has increased to 60 with this study.
