Posts: 34I can't tell you the genus, but I can do better than family: Tanytarsini. They're filter-feeding Chironomidae.

Not disinterested, but I don't have those intermediate taxonomic levels built into the database of this site. If I did, it would take a lot more clicks, CPU, and bandwidth to navigate from order to species or anything. That's one reason I integrated the forum with the insect section in the first place... so those extra details can be added here. :) Thanks.
