Henry K. Townes, "The Nearctic Species of Tendipedini [Diptera, Tendipedidae (= Chironomidae)]", American Midland Naturalist 34:1-206 (1945). (JSTOR)

This is the most recent revision of the tribe Chironomini as a whole. Some individual genera have been revised since.

The name Tendipes was used for Chironomus in the mid-20th century until a ruling of the International Commision on Zoological Nomenclature restored the traditional name.
