Three-dimensional microdistribution of Chironomus balatonicus larvae (Chironomidae, Diptera) in soft sediments from the Vistula Lagoon (South Baltic Sea)

Ryszard Kornijów and Krzysztof Pawlikowski

The paper focuses on a crucial and overlooked aspect of the ecology of chironomid larvae. Their more regularly distribution was associated with seasonally increased density, and a clustered one with decreased density. The maximum burrowing depth (up to 25 cm) positively correlated with total density, but also depended on the size of the larvae.
