The studied lake (Lagoa Mayaca) is located in a preservation area at the campus of the Universidade Federal de São Carlos. With the aim of analyzing the dynamic and the taxonomic composition of the Chironomidae, samples were taken through a transversal transect in two different periods (dry and wet season), comprehending the phenological cycle of Mayaca fluviatilis Aublet, 1775. From a total of 27 Chironomidae taxa, it was verified that the most abundant taxa in the dry season were: Cladopelma, Caladomyia sp1, Caladomyia riotarumensis, Djalmabatista pulcher, Ablablesmyia (Karelia), Tanytarsus rhabdomantis e Labrundinia. On the other hand, in the wet season the most representative were: Polypedilum (Asheum), Chironomus, Goeldichironomus, Endotribelos, Tanytarsus rhabdomantis, Caladomyia friederi, Ablablesmyia (Karelia), Labrundinia e Cricotopus. The greater taxonomic richness and number of specimens were registered in the sampled sites where Mayaca fluviatilis was present, indicating that the presence of this macrophyte was very important for structuring the studied community.
