Abstract: Biotic factors such as predation, although important drivers of the black fly community, are rarely investigated in the literature. This study aimed to test the hypothesis that the patterns of co-occurrence of black fly larvae and its potential predators is not random and that there is a correlation between its frequencies and Simuliidae larvae abundances. Larvae were sampled from two localities in the Pedra Branca State Park, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, during the dry season in june 2018. We collected Simulium pe… Show more

“…The simuliid richness observed in the Comandaí river subbasin represents 39.28% of all the reported species for the state of Rio Grande do Sul, and 6.79% of the total sampled species current reported for Brazil (Adler 2021). From the eleven sampled species in this study, S. pertinax (77.55%) showed the highest abundance and frequency of occurrence, a similar result was observed in other studies carried out in several other watersheds from Rio Grande do Sul (strieder 2004;strieder et al 2006;sAntos et al 2007;BertAzo et al 2013;CouCeiro et al 2014;menzel et al 2019), as well as in other Brazilian states (CunHA 2004;lozovei et al 2004;Coppo & lopes 2010;ArAndA 2017;Figueiró et al 2020). This species adapts easily to different micro-habitats, and currently occurs in 17 of the 27 Brazilian states, in addition to other South American countries such as Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay (Adler 2020).…”

“…Studies on the distribution of simuliids in hydrographic basins allow us to understand the general patterns of these aquatic insects' spatial organization in lotic environments, since the occurrence of immature stages is influenced by a series of local abiotic factors such as: watercourse flow, availability of substrate for immature fixation, substances dissolved in water, human action and the degree of each species' specialization to these factors (Adler & kim 1984;Corkum & Currie 1987;moreirA et al 1994;CosCArón et al 1996;HAmAdA & mCCreAdie 1999;pepinelli et al 2005;strieder et al 2006;tongjurA et al 2015;Adler & mCCreAdie 2019). Seasonality also plays an important role in the local distribution of species, since the rainy and dry seasons present distinct patterns of diversity and regional abundance, where is often observed a higher abundance during the rainy season (pepinelli et al 2005;Figueiró et al 2014;srisukA et al 2015;pAvitrA et al 2020;Figueiró et al 2020;jACoB et al 2021;srisukA et al 2021).…”
