A list of the most common phytotelmata and their Culicidae and Ceratopogonidae inhabitants from the Iguazú National Park, Misiones Province, Argentina, is presented, and biological and behavioral observations are also included. Species of Poaceae, Bromeliaceae, Apiaceae, Araceae, Urticaceae, Marantaceae, and Arecaceae, were identified as phytotelmata. Twenty six species of Culicidae and nine of Ceratopogonidae were identified. Highest species richness of culicids and ceratopogonids were recorded from the bamboo Guadua chacoensis (Poaceae) and treeholes respectively. Fourteen species of Culicidae and three of Ceratopogonidae inhabit bamboo, two and five treeholes, seven and three bromeliads, and nine and one other less known phytotelmata, respectively.
