Abstract: In the course of the identification of dipterous insects collected by light traps in Nagasaki Prefecture, the author's attention was attracted to a small female diptera which had apparently reddish meal in her abdomen. The female was identified as Corethrella sp. of family Chaoboridae. The reddish meals in the mid-guts of ten females were examined with the benzidine tests (Hemastix) for hemoglobin, and they were confirmed to be apparently blood. Williams and Edman (1968) reported that some individuals of North American species of Corethrella brakeleyi and C. wirthi contained avian and mammalian bloods in their stomachs. This finding seemed to be the second record of blood feeding in the family Chaoboridae. This species will be described as a new to science elsewhere.
