This topic is about the True Fly Family Chironomidae

Midges are the most important aquatic insects in some places, especially fertile spring creeks where they are extremely abundant and the current is so slow that it's efficient for trout to surface feed on very tiny insects.

Some midges are large, up to hook size 14, but the majority are size 22 or smaller. The number of genera and species is hopelessly huge for angler entomologists to ever learn, and the identifing characteristics often require slide-mounting tiny parts under high-powered microscopes. Even the most Latin-minded fisherman must slip back to the basics--size and color--to describe his local midge hatches. Read more...

There are 20 more specimens...

Hello, Azniani. Welcome aboard. Chironimus kiiensis appears to be an Asian (Korean) species. Therefore, I kind of doubt that you will be able to learn much about it on this forum. However, if you were to be more specific concerning kind of information you hope to learn about it, perhaps someone here could be of some assistance to you.
