Abstract
    A recent collection on a sandy beach in Tunisia revealed the presence of three species of Chersodromia. The presence of Ch. albopilosa CHVALA, 1970 in Tunisia is confirmed. Ch. nigrosetosa CHVALA, 1970 is recorded for the first time for Tunisia and Ch. tunisiana sp. nov., a micropterous species related to Ch. curtipennis COLLIN and neocurtipennis BESCHOVSKI, is described as new for science. A checklist for Chersodromia of North Africa is given. Brachyptery in empidoids is discussed.
