A method for rearing pupae of net-winged midges (Diptera: Blephariceridae) and other torrenticolous flies. [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
A method for obtaining reared adults of net-winged midges (Diptera: Blephariceridae) is presented. Rocks with attached pupae are removed from the stream and placed in a container maintained at high humidity. Survival and emergence rates exceeding 60% were recorded for several species of Nearctic Blepharicera. This method is ideal for associating pupae and adults of blepharicerids and other torrenticolous flies.
