... Chironomidae Insects tolerant of seawater submergence can be classified as either osmoregulators or osmoconformers ( Bradley,1987 ). During exposure to high salinity, osmoregulators maintain the hemolymph at a concentration hyposmotic to the external medium. This strategy is common among dipteran...

...Michael A. Elnitsky; Scott A. L. Hayward; Joseph P. Rinehart; David L. Denlinger; Richard E. Lee, Jr SUMMARY During winter, larvae of the Antarctic midge, Belgica antarctica (Diptera, Chironomidae), must endure 7–8 months of continuous subzero temperatures, encasement in a matrix of soil and ice...

... typically remains between 0 and –2°C and rarely falls below –7°C( Baust and Lee, 1981 ). In common with many Chironomidae, B. antarctica larvae are not particularly resistant to water loss, but are highly desiccation tolerant( Baust and Lee, 1987 ). Indeed, B. antarctica appears highly resilient...

.... Here, we report a novel role for RCH by showing that RCH also increases freezing tolerance in an Antarctic midge, Belgica antarctica (Diptera, Chironomidae). The RCH response of B. antarctica was investigated under two distinct physiological states: summer acclimatized and cold acclimated. Summer...
