CHAOBORIDAE

Remarks: The internal arrangement of the male genital tract in Chaoboridae has not been investigated. Given the similarities of the male genital structures (membranous aedeagus, paramere, ventral plate absent) with Corethrellidae ( Wood, 1991) and its known phylogenetic position as the sister group of the Culicidae , we predict that the genital tract is either very similar to those of Corethrellidae and Culicidae or show some further modifications.
