Few studies have evaluated the emergence of Chironomidae in aquatic communities because they are much diversified (MARCONDES; PINHO, 2005), exhibit multivoltine cycles (SONODA et al., 2005; STUR et al., 2006) and short life cycle, of only a few weeks (RAUNIO et al., 2007).

They are usually multivoltine with several generations at low latitudes (Nikbakhtzadeh and Tirgari, 2008).
Thus, species with slow larval (embryonic) growth rates are usually semelparous and univoltine, but can be iteroparous by precocious birth of larvae (embryos), and multivoltine by accelerated growth of semelparous individuals.
The cluster analysis based on the UPGMA statistical package to establish relationship using haemolymph proteins (Figure-6) clearly indicated that [C.sub.108] and [NB.sub.4][D.sub.2] falls in the same cluster with a similarity coefficient of 0.18, Whereas Nistari and Pure Mysore being multivoltine falls in one cluster with a similarity coefficient of 0.03.
These two late-season species were sampled in case the parasites sometimes linger that long in their hosts and in case the species is bivoltine or multivoltine rather than limited to one generation per year.
