Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new species of fungus gnats in the genus Cordyla Meigen, 1803, C. bomloensis sp. n., is described
based on adult material from southwestern Norway. Both the male and the female are described,
photographed and their terminalia figured. The new species belongs in the C.fusca-group. It seems to
be most closely allied to C. brevicornis (Staeger, 1840) and C. pusilla Edwards, 1925 from which it is
differing prevalently by structures of the male and female terminalia. Its seemingly isolated distribution
in southwestern Norway is briefly commented on.
