AbstractAustroconops perrichoti, a new species of biting midge (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae), is described from uppermost Albian-lowermost Cenomanian amber of Charente-Maritime (NW France), from three female specimens. A similar species, Austroconops borkenti Szadziewski & Schlüter, 1992, from Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian, French amber of Anjou, is redescribed and illustrated. A key to males and females of extinct species of Austroconops Wirth & Lee is also provided.
