Sound is used in mating interactions in many species of Culicidae (reviewed in Gibson 1985; Clements 1999; Cator 2010), which together with Chaoboridae form the sister group of frog-biting midges (Borkent 2008).
Although Mayfly is the common name of ephemeroptera, chaoboridae and chironomidae are referred to as mayflies by the villagers simply because of their spectacular characteristic month of May emergence.

No reservatorio do Parque Zoologico Municipal de Bauru, durante o periodo chuvoso, as familias Naididae e Tubificidae (Oligochaeta), Chaoboridae e o genero Tanypus foram os taxons de maior densidade; no periodo seco, os generos Caladomyia, Complexo Harnischia, Polypedilum e Chironomus e as familias Naididae e Tubificidae apresentaram densidades mais elevadas (Tabela 1).
O dominio numerico deste grupo deve-se ao predominio das familias Chaoboridae, Glossiphoniidae e Odonata, alem de larvas da familia Chironomidae pertencentes a subfamilia Tanypodinae.
