Tabanids collections were conducted during 2013 in Marambaia Island, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, through modified Manitoba trap and insect hand net in ecotone between forest areas, marsh, Atlantic forest and meadow. Among the diagnosed specimens, Chlorotabanus inanis (Fabricius) 1787 was one of the commonest species, which had its occurrence in Rio de Janeiro Province not very well registered since Lutz studies, early last century. Taxonomic aspects of the species are discussed.
