- Brown, B.V et al. (2009) have published with the NRC Research Press in Ottawa the Manual of Central American Diptera, Vol. 1. Among the introductory and general chapters as well as treatments of 41 other dipteran families are a chapter on the Chironomidae Martin Spies, Trond Andersen, John Epler and Charles Watson. Although a lengthly editing and publishing cycle has made some of the lists slightly outdated, it is nonetheless a useful book.
