Two new psychodid flies, Eophlebotomus gezei sp. nov. and E. carentonensis sp. nov., are described from Lebanese and French Lower Cretaceous ambers. They are considered here to form part of the same genus as the Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber, Eophlebotomus connectens Cockerell, 1920. These discoveries allow the description of the antenna and male genitalia of this enigmatic genus. Although the new species of Eophlebotomus share numerous characters with the Phlebotominae, especially the male genital structures, we retain this genus in the stem-group of the Sycoracinae and Trichomyiinae.
