Rearing data for four species of Carnidae (Diptera) are presented from material obtained in the 1930s by E.B. Basden. 387 specimens of Meoneura lamellata Collin, 1930 were reared, almost exclusively from nests of the sand martin, Riparia riparia. 533 specimens of Meoneura neottiophila Collin, 1930 came from nests of 14 bird species and the grey squirrel, Sciurus carolinensis. 344 specimens of Carnus hemapterus Nitzsch, 1818 came from 3 bird species and 2 specimens of Meoneura vagans (Fallen, 1823) were reared from dung of the pheasant, Phasilanus colchicus. The puparium of M. lamellata is described and compared with that of M. neottiophila and C. hemapterus.
