Since the publication of the “Checkliste der Dipteren Deutschlands” (Schumann et al. 1999) and of the first and second supplements to the checklist (Schumann 2002, 2005), 120 additional Diptera species have been recorded from Germany. These again consist of both new descriptions and new records drawn from various publications. A further 3 species which were previously doubtfully recorded can now be confirmed. As a result of new synonymies or misidentifications, 13 species are removed from the checklist. 27 nomenclatural changes have been recognised. Following these modifications, the number of Diptera species recorded from Germany is now 9,544.
