The results of a five-year study on hover flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) of the saline habitats of the Polish coast are reported. During study seasons (1999-2003), in twelve localities representing beaches and coastal brackish habitats, 56 species of these flies were collected. Among them, 43 are new to these areas. The dominance structure of syrphid communities, their phenology and abundance in the saline habitats are characterized.
