The Corynoneura Group: A Global Revision provides detailed and accurate taxonomy of the Corynoneura generic group and discusses the scientific basis for phylogenetic studies of Chironomidae. Four main sections are detailed: introduction, keys, classification and zoogeography. This comprehensive guide includes preliminary biogeographic analysis of the worldwide fauna based on the Corynoneura generic group and species distribution data, summaries of the typical classification features, and keys to all the Corynoneura generic group with over 100 species of Corynoneura are described in detail with morphological figures. The Corynoneura Group is a useful resource for researchers and practitioners in the field of entomology, systematics, phylogeny, biogeography, biodiversity and ecology.
