Intensive collecting in Cedar Bog, Champaign County, Ohio 1978 and 1979, using a modified Malaise trap baited with dry-ice and shiny black sphere, and an aerial net, together with a review of specimens housed in 5 of Ohio's maintained insect collections, produced records for 33 spp of horse flies and deer flies (Diptera: Tabanidae). The seasonal abundance for many of these species was documented by employing standardized collection techniques, and the great diversity of tabanid species was attributed to the wide variety of larval breeding habitats found in this area. Species unique to the bog, and some natural enemies of Tabanidae found there are discussed.
