We report Neosilba pradoi and Dasiops frieseni (Diptera: Lonchaeidae) for the first time in Uruguay, which is the most southern distribution yet found for these species. Moreover, new host associations are recorded: D. frieseni in Citrus sinensis cv. Valencia and an undetermined lonchaeid in Acanthosyris spinescens.
