Which Romans Were Roman Senators In The Late Roman Republic From 49-46 BC?

The lists below only reflect the names of those members of the Senate whom history is aware of, and are a compilation [not yet complete] of information gleaned from various secondary sources. Also indicated in the list is the political affiliation–when known–of each senator and whether they were "New Men" (from families who didn't have an elected consul in their family history). Note that I haven't yet factored in any deaths that might have occurred.
