Paracladius alpicola (Zetterstedt, 1850), A New Chironomid Species for the Turkish Limnofauna

Paracladius alpicola (Zetterstedt, 1850) is reported for the first time for Turkish limnofauna from Lake Kartal (Denizli, Beyagac), southwestern Turkey. Specifically including P. conversus and other similar taxon under genus Paracladius, the morphological characteristics of the fourth-instar P. alpicola larvae, and ecological attributes of the habitat are described
