A new species of a hematophagous midge, Lasiohelea tianmushana Yu & Yang (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae), is described based on morphological features. Specimens were collected in April 2016 with light traps at Western Tianmu Mountain in the Lin'an area in Zhejiang province, China. There are now 67 known species of Lasiohelea from the Palearctic and Oriental regions in China and, to our knowledge, this is the first record of the genus at Western Tianmu Mountain.
