Paratendipes nigrofasciatus Kieffer  

( Figs. 33–35 View FIGURES 32 – 38 )

Paratendipes nigrofasciatus Kieffer, 1916: 117   .

Prochironomus irioheius Sasa et Suzuki, 2000: 16   –17, Fig. 17 View FIGURES 13 – 26 a –m. [Holotype 385: 043.] Syn. nov.

Prochironomus irioheius   apparently belongs in the genus Paratendipes   , as it has a cylindrical median volsella densely covered with slightly broadened setae and a superior volsella with swollen base and short, slightly hocked distal part ( Figs. 33–34 View FIGURES 32 – 38 ). The wing of P. irioheius   has two broad, conspicuous dark bands ( Fig. 35 View FIGURES 32 – 38 ﹚, and the anal point is comparatively short and slender. According to Kieffer (1916: 117), these characters are diagnostic for Paratendipes nigrofasciatus Kieffer.  

Wang et al. (1989) placed Chironomus (Prochironomus) bifascipennis Tokunaga, 1940   as a junior synonym of Paratendipes nigrofasciatus   . Prochironomus Kieffer, 1909   is considered a nomen dubium by Ashe and Cranston (1990: 317).
