Abstract: 172 wild ruminants were examined for infection with warble fly larvae in Hungary. Larvae of Hypoderma diana Brauer, 1858 were found to occur in 97.8% of roe deer and 64.7% of red deer examined, while larvae of H. actaeon Brauer, 1858 showed 92.9% incidence in red deer. Among Hypodermatid imagoes from the collection of the National History Museum in Budapest a further species Oestromyia leporina (Pallas, 1778) Brauer, 1863 was also identified in Hungary. Data related to the life cycle and seasonal dynamics of these parasites are discussed. Finally, control measures are suggested including early chemotherapy to be carried out in October-November.
