Abstract: Chironomid larvae were collected from lotic and lentic sites in Carroll Co., Ohio, from October 1981 to October 1982. Over 700 larvae were mounted on glass slides for identification. A total of 80 species was found. The species collected are listed with site and date of collection. The number of species is comparable to that reported in other studies. Gut contents are listed for 49 species, most of which are detritivores. Some species probably change feeding habits depending on their age and stream flow. Approximate emergence periods are given for 10 species.
