Abstract
Chironomid pupal exuviae were collected from coastal rock pools at Isle Royale National Park, Michigan, from April to October in 2009 and 2010. Pools in bedrock depressions were separated into those higher on the shore, where desiccation is likely an important disturbance, and lower on the shore, where wave-wash from Lake Superior is likely a fundamental influence. The 102 species collected represent 42 genera in six subfamilies. The distribution and ecology of each species is summarized. Also included are remarks on species with significant range expansions, either with Palearctic or Nearctic disjunct ranges, or novel habitat use among species that are typically considered lotic but occur in splash zone pools at Isle Royale.
