Abstract
The Simuliidae described by J.W. Meigen are taxonomically revised. Of 23 species names 11 are considered valid and 12 are treated as synonyms. Simulium argyreatum Meigen is shown to be misinterpreted by recent authors and to be a senior synonym of S. rheophilum (Knoz): S. posticatum Meigen is the valid senior synonym of S. austeni Edwards; and Helodon rufus (Meigen) is a valid name supplanting H. ferrugineus (Wahlberg). Simulium neolleri Friederichs is restored as the valid name for the lake-outlet species with 8-filamented pupal gill, consequent upon the finding that the name argyreatum has been misapplied to this species. Lectotypes are designated for 6 of Meigen's nominal species and also for Boophthora crythrocephala .
