Abstract. This paper on the subfamily Tanypodinae is part of a study describing the communities of Chironomidae found in a wetland where the plant communities previously had been defined. The wetland is adjacent to Beckman Lake, a small, senescent lake less than 1 m deep, in the Cedar Creek Natural History Area 50 km north of St. Paul, Minnesota. Much of the lake has been obliterated by wetland vegetation; the south end is covered by a large floating sedge mat, and the lake itself contains abundant submerged vegetation. A transect sampled through the wetland crossed a marginal mixed fen, a swamp forest with Sphagnum, Larix laricina and Picea mariana, and a floating sedge mat leading to open water.

Keywords. Chironomidae, Tanypodinae, wetland
