We demonstrate the formation of composite fermions in two-dimensional quantum dots under high magnetic fields. The composite-fermion interpretation provides a simple way to understand several qualitative and quantitative features of the numerical results obtained earlier in exact diagonalization studies. In particular, the ground states are recognized as compactly filled quasi-Landau levels of composite fermions.
