Abstract:

A collection of ceratopogonids was made in the Taipei area from March 1961 through February 1964 by using New Jersey light traps. The light traps were operated four nights a week and yielded a sample of 4,230 collections for the three year period. The records of ceratopogonid collections and the climatic factors including temperature, relative humidity, rainfall and wind velocity of the Taipei area for 1961-64 were correlated and analyzed by the use of four-week moving means. The yearly pattern of the ceratopogonids collected shows two eminences in spring and autumn alternating with two depressions in cold and hot seasons respectively. Author
