The checklist is based primarily on extensive collections made by the United States Naval Medical Research Unit No. 3 NAMRU-3 in Egypt. Forms listed are those that are known or expected to occur in Egypt including Sinai, and those that have been reported from Egypt without further verification. The systematic lists contain original citations, references to major faunal works, and the most recent reviews of each particular group. From the 3.424 specimens obtained, adequate distributional data are now available for most forms in Egypt. Maps showing collecting localities for each species are also presented for use in future sympatric and ecological studies.
