Two new distinctive species of predaceous biting midges of the tribe Ceratopogonini are described and illustrated from the Middle East. Brachypogon freidbergi sp. nov., with a unique Y-shaped gonostylus, is recorded from Israel. We also provide the first records of Brachypogon vitiosus (Winnertz) and B. aethiopicus (Clastrier, Rioux & Descous) from this country, and a key to the adult males of the genus Brachypogon Kieffer from the Middle East. Ceratopogon azari sp. nov., described from Lebanon…

Harmful touch: tarsal palisades as unique tools of predation in biting midges (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae)

This study shows that reinforced tarsal setae probably evolved independently on the tarsi of biting midges, in the lineage of originally parasitic Forcipomyiinae and DasyheleINAe and within the lineageof predatory Ceratopogoninae.
