dc.description.abstract Records of Chironomidae as flower visitors are few (Larson et al. 2001), and explanations of their anthophilous activities even fewer. In the Arctic, several species are known as flower visitors and nectariphages (McApline, 1965; Oliver, 1968; Hocking, 1968; Kevan, 1970; 1973; Larson et al. 2001), but none so abundant and conspicuous as Smittia velutina.
