The chironomid midge Micropsectra wendigo Taber is described from the western Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Adult males were collected in a Malaise trap in April in a woods with paper birch (Betula papyrifera Marshall), red maple (Acer rubrum L.), black ash (Fraxinus nigra Marshall), and black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrhart) trees. The new species belongs to a little-studied genus but seems to be most closely related to the flies of the recurvata group.
