European Micropezids & Tanypezids

Countries are thirsty for summarized data and insights for policy-making but we are running short of tools (Martinez, 2023)

Records of the following species, collected in Finnmark in 2010 are presented: Acartophthalmidae: Acartophthalmus nigrinus (Zetterstedt, 1848); Campichoetidae: Campichoeta griseola (Zetterstedt, 1855); Diastatidae: Diastata flavicosta Chandler, 1987 and Diastata ornata Meigen, 1830; Dryomyzidae: Dryomyza anilis Fallén, 1820, Dryope decrepita (Zetterstedt, 1838), Paradryomyza spinigera Ozerov, 1987, and Pseudoneuroctena senilis (Zetterstedt, 1846); and Micropezidae: Calobata petronella (Linnaeus, 1761), Neria cibaria (Linnaeus, 1761), and Neria commutata (Czerny, 1930). Of these, P. spinigera has not previously been recorded from Norway and A. nigrinus , C. griseola , D. ornata , D. decrepita , P. senilis and N. cibaria are new to Finnmark. Comparison of DNA barcodes with records in the BOLD database confirmed the Holarctic distributions of A. nigrinus , C. griseola and D. decrepita , whereas the barcodes of D. anilis form two clearly delimited clusters – one Nearctic and one Palearctic.
