Ablabesmyia Johannsen 

Seven species of Ablabesmyia  were found in the light traps: Ablabesmyia (Karelia) illinoensis (Malloch)  , A. (K.) philosphagnos Beck & Beck  , A. (K.) pulchripennis (Lundbeck)  , A. (A.) mallochi (Walley)  , A. (A.) aspera (Roback)  , A. (A.) basalis (Walley)  , A. (A.) monilis auct  . nec L., and A. (Asayia) annulata (Say)  . Of these, however, four were never taken from bottom samples in 1969. Only A. (A.) annulata  was common in the dredge samples. The genus is treated in a separate paper ( Saether 2011).
