The identification of species of Culicoides was based on the morphological character of the insect according to Wirth and Hubert. The result showed that the number of Culicoides was found in Depok region more than in Cibungbulang. There were 14 species identified from the two region. In Depok, the specieses of Culicoides were dominated by C. parahumeralis Wirth & Hubert, C. actoni Smith, C. oxystoma KiefFer and C. peregrinus Kiefier; whereas in Cibungbulang, they were dominated by C. parahumeralis, C. orientalis Macfiei, C. peregrinus and C oxystoma.
