What is a chironomid you ask? Here is an answer to that question that I found on a fly fishing forum that asked the same question. Do not take my work for it, but seems like an informed answer to me
Insects of the order Diptera include a diverse number of families, and the family Chironomidae is one of them. Mosquitoes (Cuculidae) and craneflies (Tipulidae) are other families within that order. Other families include blackflies, no-see-ums, and snipe flies. There are ]many genera within the family Chironomidae possibly as many as fifty here in Washington state. ROGER, THIS SOUNDS LIKE A JOB FOR TAXON!!!
Midge is simply the common name for any small fly, while chironomid has a special meaning; an insect of the familyChironomidae. The name chironomid can be, and is, applied to all life stages (larva, pupa and adult) of any member of that family.
