Goldie-Smith, EK and Thorpe, JR (1991) Eggs of British Meniscus midges (diptera;dixidae) observed by scanning electron microscopy. Freshwater Biology, 1(3), pp. 215-224.
The egg of Dixella martinii is described for the first time. The eggs of the Dixidae are placed in three morphological groups: bulbous and meshed; streamlined and smooth; streamlined and minutely spiculated. Ten of the fourteen species known from Britain are placed in these groups. After a detailed description of the egg of D. martinii, the three morphological groups are described and scanning electron micrographs are provided.
