  author={Elizabeth Morgulis and Amnon Freidberg},
The Ulidiini (Ulidiidae: Ulidiinae) fauna of Israel is reviewed. Eighteen species in three genera (Physiphora, Timia and Ulidia) are recognized. Five species are described as new: Timia fallax n. sp., T. ritae n. sp., Ulidia aurata n. sp., U. hirsuta n. sp. and U. wasimi n. sp.
