ABSTRACT
In this study, Chironomidae (Diptera) larvae, which were collected from 6 localities were evaluated taxonomically at the end of the field work in Bozcaada on 14-15/08/1999, 28/02/2001 and 24/05/2002. The two species (Macropelopia nebulosa (Mg.) and Telmatopelopia nemorum (G.)) belong to the two genus from the subfamily of Tanypodinae of Chironomidae, the four species (Cricotopus sylvestris (Fabr.), C. intersectus (Staeg.), Halocladius fucicola P (Edw.) and Paratrichocladius rufiventris (Mg.)) belong to the three genus from the subfamily of Orthocladiinae and the eight species belong to four genus from the subfamily of Chironominae (Chironomus salinarius K., C. thummi K., C. anthracinus (Zett.), C. viridicollis K., Einfeldia pagana (Mg.), Polypedilum aberrans Tsch., P. convictum (Walk.), Micropsectra praecox (Mg.). Totally fourteen species have been determined and recognition keys have been given. All these species are new records for Bozcaada. Also, the species of Chironomus salinarius K. is the new record for the fauna of Chironomidae in Turkey.
