Abstract

The male of Microchironomus trisetifer (Hashimoto, 1981) is redescribed. The pupa of M. trisetifer and the larva and pupa of M. tabarui Sasa, 1987 are described for the first time based on material collected from southern China. Immature stages of M. tabarui deviate considerably from the previous generic concept. An emended generic diagnosis and keys to the known males and pupae are also provided.
