For information on Chironomidae please visit the community web page on
This web site originated as a private project for my PhD in 2010 to publicly
- share my microscopic images
- share my developed image management tool Chironomidae Identification Program CHIP
I do not work any more with Chironomidae but this web site is intended to stay and contribute my work. May be it is of some help ;-)
“The important thing is not to stop questioning.” Albert Einstein
[..] Don't accept what we are talking about. Find out, test it! That means you have to be free to observe: to observe without any wish, any longing, any pressureâ€”you know?â€”to observe as you observe a lovely flower. Then you will find that time psychologically has ended. There is no becoming, or "I am"â€”which is the same.
(Jiddu Krishnamurti: Saanen 7th public talk 23rd July 1978)
