Cecidomyiidae - Clinodiplosis sp.
Size: 1.11 mm
Group Guild Status
Eutroglophile Scavenger Common
Larvae of Clinodiplosis spp. are commonly associated with decaying plant and animal matter and finding them associated with bat guano would not be unexpected. Clinodiplosis was recorded by Peck (1988) from Mount Nemo Cave in Alberta, Canada. There is no ecological information with this record, so it is not know if it is potentially a guanophile. Clinodiplosis (araneosa) is recorded from the entrance area of Cueva de los Riscos in the State of Durango, Mexico (Reddell 1982). The ecological status of this record is also not known.
