ABSTRACT. A review of the bee flies (Diptera: Bombyliidae) parasitic on preimaginal stages of antlion (Myrmeleontidae) is given. A first case of Micomitra stupida (Rossi, 1790) as a parasite of an antlion, probably Euroleon nostras (Geoffroy in Fourcroy, 1785), in Dagestan, Russia is presented. The distribution of M. stupida is mapped.

KEY WORDS: bee flies, antlion, parasite, Dagestan, Russia.
