Pages: 123-135.

Abstract: Applying a novel way of sample collection and a quick method of identification, cow pat Diptera of the Hortobágy National Park (at Nagyiván, Hungary) were sampled in 2003 to 2005. In 1015 samples of standardised sample collection 92680 individuals of 106 species were found and determined, of them 75 species were represented by less than 0.1% relative abundance. The dominance of Coproica lugubris (HALIDAY, 1836) was most characteristic, independently to the dry or wetter periods. Three species new to Hungary and ten species new to the Hortobágy National Park are reported. With 2 figures and one table.
