This midge and several like it, including a male I also photographed, hatched from larvae which were living in some fine mud I'm using as substrate in my bug-rearing aquarium. This one flew away before I could photograph it on the ruler, but it would have measured slightly smaller than the male.
This true fly was collected from Mystery Creek #62 on April 10th, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com on April 10th, 2007.
