A summer survey was made of the chironomid fauna of six littoral sites, three sandy and three rocky, in Lough Neagh, Northern Ireland. The most abundant taxa at four of the sites were Glyptotendipes sp.gr. A and Microtendipes pedellus gr. TWINSPAN computer analysis divided the site initially by substrate type. Insects comprised over 50 per cent of the macroinvertebrate fauna in the sandy littoral and c70 per cent in the rocky, chironomids being 99 per cent (sand) and 93 per cent (rocks) of the insects in terms of numbers.
