Data on the crane flies of the subfamily Limoniinae of the family Limoniidae from East Kazakhstan are reviewed on the basis of material collected by the author during 2004–2018. 55 species from 12 genera were identified, and two species, Limonia zwicki Devyatkov, 2012 and Dicranomyia (Idiopyga) oosterbroeki Devyatkov, 2013 are described. Two European species, Dicranomyia (Dicranomyia) radegasti Stary, 1993 and Limonia stigma (Meigen, 1818), were newly recorded for Asia, and 30 species were registered from Kazakhstan for the first time. 38 species (69%) are Palaearctic in distribution, 15 species (27%) are Holarctic, one species (2%) is Oriental-Holarctic, and one species (2%) is endemic of East Kazakhstan.
