Re: [Dryrod] Midges
Hey,

Midges comprise many kinds of very small two-winged flies. The term does not encapsulate a well-defined taxonomic group, but includes animals in several families of Nematoceran Diptera. The habits of midges vary greatly among the component families, which include:[1]

* Blephariceridae, net-winged midges
* Cecidomyiidae, gall midges
* Ceratopogonidae, biting midges (also known as no-see-ums or punkies in North America)
* Chaoboridae, phantom midges
* Chironomidae, non-biting midges (also known as muffleheads in the Great Lakes region of North America)
* Deuterophlebiidae, mountain midges
* Dixidae, meniscus midges
* Scatopsidae, dung midges
* Thaumaleidae, solitary midges
