Multichotomous identification keys are provided to the black fly larvae and pupae of New Jersey and neighboring states. Control of black flies is targeted at the aquatic immature stages, making proper identification of larvae and pupae vital for suppression purposes. The key includes 40 species known from NJ and an additional 24 species from surrounding states. A species confirmation table is also included to increase identification accuracy. Diagnostic images of simuliid pupae and larvae are also provided.
