Abstract

A cytological and morphological survey of the black flies of Prince Edward Island revealed 20 species of which 13 represent new provincial records. An additional three species have been recorded in the literature but were not found in this study. All 20 species are widely distributed on the North American mainland. Three species are significant pests of humans, six feed on birds, two species do not take blood, and the remaining species feed on non-human mammals.
