Abstract

A method for obtaining reared adults of net-winged midges (Diptera: Bleaphariceridae) is presented. Rocks with attached pupae are removed from the stream and placed in a container maintained at high humidity. Survival and emergence rates exceeding 60% were recorded for several species of Nearctic Blepharicera. This method is ideal for associating pupae and adults of blepharicerids and other torrenticulous flies.
