In 1930 Sinton gave a list of the African sandflies and in 1931 Theodor published a similar list. Theodor recorded 20 species which included the Mediterranean fauna as well. Since that date a large number of new species has been descriptionbed. We have thought, therefore, that it would serve a useful purpose to give an up to date catalogue of the purely Ethiopian fauna which now includes over 40 species. We do not give exhaustive references but only those which may be regarded as important for identification.
