In the general section, the historic review of classification, taxonomic systems, morphology, phylogeny, biogeography and biology of long-legged flies are introduced. In the taxonomic section, 66 genera and 1026 species from China are described or redescribed. Among them 19 species are described as new to science. The keys to the world subfamilies of Dolichopodidae and the Chinese genera and species are presented. The types of the new species are deposited in the Entomological Museum of China Agricultural University, Beijing.
