Sampling comments: "the larval population was sampled eight times. A square frame was constructed of two lengths of steel 25 X 4 mm hinged near their ends to enclose a basal area of .25 M2. Fine-mesh nylon was attached to the frame forming a bag about 1 m long. In operation, the opened frame was dropped into the water from a boat"
