Few taxonomic monographs published in China are written in English and
include taxa from outside China. This booklet is one of them. It is
a taxonomic monograph of midges belonging to the genus Lasiohelea (Diptera:
Ceratopogonidae: Forcipomyiinae), based on material collected by Wirth
and colleagues from various Southeast Asian countries. It describes 43
species of Lasiohelea from this region, including 27 new species and 8
new records. Prior to this monograph, only 8 species of Lasiohelea were
known in Southeast Asia (Borkent & Wirth, 1997).
