Chironomids, named after their scientific family group Chironomidae, are commonly referred to as “non-biting midges” to distinguish them from their biting relatives (like “no-see-ums” that bite humans voraciously). They are dipteran cousins to mosquitoes (Diptera commonly known as true flies which include many familiar insects like mosquitoes, black flies, midges-both biting and non-biting, fruit flies and house flies).
