Abstract. The family Tabanidae is characterized and interactive photographic keys are provided to the 3 subfamilies of Tabanidae in Canada east of the Rocky Mountains. Keys are also provided for the genera and species of the subfamily Chrysopsinae of this region (including 40 species of Chrysops Meigen [deer flies] and one species of Merycomyia Hine) and the genera and species of the subfamily Pangoniinae (one species of Goniops Aldrich and two species of Stonemyia Brennan) occurring in eastern and central Canada. Distribution maps for all species are provided, incorporating significant additional records since the most recently published maps (Teskey, 1990).
