  • The author

The “biting midges” may be found in large numbers in nearly any aquatic or semiaquatic habit and include 110 genera and 6000 or so species in all regions of the world. Because of their small size (usually 0.8-4 mm) they have been little collected and are poorly known. Adult habits are diverse, but the females of most species are adapted to some type of bloodsucking therefore call “blood-sucking midges”. Those of Austroconops, Leptoconops. Lasiohelea and Culicoides species suck vertebratede blood, and are sometimes notorious pests, especially in beach or mountain resort areas. Some bloodsucking midges are important vectors of pathogens for man, birds and domestic animals. In the four genera of blood-sucking midges, Lasiohelea, Tokuhaga (1959) had changed it to a subgenus of Forcipomyia, but according to our research and my colleagues had advocated since 1982 to return Lasiohelea to its genus status. The reason for it had been published in “A Study of Lasiohelea in China (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae)” (Yu Y.-X and K. N. Liu 1982), and “Lasiohelea of Southeast Asia” (Yu Y. –X. and W. W. Wirth 1997)

The publication is intended as a name list of all available species of blood-sucking midges (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) of the world, including author, date of publication, page number of original description, and country of the type locality. All named taxa described till December 2005 are included, and some in 2006 also incorporated.
