In the study of population dynamics of non-biting midges (Diptera: Chironomidae) emerging from reclaimed rice fields in Seosan, Chungchongnam-do, Korea, a new species, Tanytarsus seosanensis sp. nov. and an unrecorded species from Korea, Chironomus javonus (Kieffer) were found. T.seosonensis was the third dominant species among the non-biting midges found in the reclaimed rice fields, whereas C.javanus was a rare species. They are fully described with illustrations.
