Abstract: There were 5 black fly species found in Dr. Z Kaszab's Mongolian collections: Titanopteryx koidzumii Takah., Gnus cholodkowskii (Rubz.), Gnus subvariegatum Dor. et Rubz., Simulium ishikawai Takah., and a new species, Eusimulium baatori Rubzow. All these species, having bloodsucking mouth parts, were now shown for the first time in Mongolia. From a faunistical point of view, they might be regarded as Transbaikalian and Manchurian faunal elements. It is worthy of note that the species, characteristic for Western Mongolia, of the genus Tetisimulium are absent from collections. The species captured represent only a fraction of the probable black fly fauna of Mongolia. A more thorough investigation of the simulid fauna requires the study of streaming waters, the collecting pupae, and the breeding of the imagos.
