    This paper reports the first observations of Leptarthus vitripennis (Meigen, 1820), Choerades fuliginosa (Panzer, 1798) and Choerades ignea (Meigen, 1820) in Belgium, raising the number of Belgian Asilidae to 52. Leptharthus vitripennis and C. fuliginosa were found in the Belgian Lorraine region, in the southernmost part of Belgium, during a 5-day field campaign. Choerades ignea was found in the Belgian Campine region. Ecology, habitat preference and some notes on distribution in neighbouring countries of all three species are discussed in detail.
