Fourteen species of black scavenger flies in four genera are treated taxonomically in this paper. Five species belonging to the subfamily Sepsinae are recorded for the first time in the Philippines, namely: Sepsis sepsi Ozerov, Dicranosepsis dudai Ozerov, Dicranosepsis transita Ozerov, Dicranosepsis sauteri Ozerov, and Dicranosepsis pseudotibialis Ozerov. A new Philippine island distribution record of Australosepsis niveipennis (Becker) is also noted. Taxonomic keys for the genera and species are presented.
