Ovitraps with eggs of Dasyhelea necrophila were detected at five localities in Uruguay during surveillance and control of Aedes aegypti. Relevant dates of oviposition in wild of this Ceratopogonidae species are included in addition to previous laboratory work on the species. Eggs of D. necrophila were deposited together with eggs of Culicidae and Psychodidae. These are the first records of the species from Uruguay.
