Los resultados del presente trabajo demuestran que la familia Chironomidae es la mas representativa en el experimento, se encuentra desde los primeros dias de muestreo y no muestra diferencias significativas en la preferencia de sustrato; este dato es corroborado por diferentes autores que han trabajo con paquetes de hojarasca, los cuales tambien encontraron una alta dominancia de esta familia en los sustratos empleados en sus investigaciones (MATHURIAU & CHAUVET, 2002; CARVALHO & UIEDA, 2004; NESSIMIAN & HENRIQUES-OLIVEIRA, 2005; CALLISTO et al.
However, Illinois streams in watersheds with predominately agricultural and urban LULC have been shown to exhibit functionally different communities dominated by collector-gatherers and pollution tolerant families including Chironomidae, Ceratopogonidae, and non-insectan taxa such as Oligochaeta (Gorman 1987, Sangunett 2005, Stone et al.
Less-tolerant or rheophilic families such as Baetidae and Simuliidae can face decline or expiration in prolonged drought conditions, while more tolerant species such as Chironomidae and Ceratopogonidae can become more abundant (Wright and Symes 1999).

Chironomidae were separated into morphotypes and at least one representative of each morphotype was cleared in lactic acid, dehydrated in a series of increasing ethanol concentrations (80%, 90%, and 100%) and mounted in Euparal[R] mounting medium on glass slides (Epler, 2001).
Likewise, total abundance has been found either to decrease or to increase in dam tailwaters, the latter occurring when dominance of certain taxa like Chironomidae becomes pronounced (Munn, Brusven 1991).
