A Siberian fungus gnat (Diptera: Mycetophilidae) species found in Estonia

Olavi Kurina, Jostein Kjaerandsen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The first European record of Exechia inaperta Ostroverkhova, 1979 is presented and its morphological difference from the allied E. exigua Lundstrom, 1909 is discussed. Diagnostic characters and detailed figures of male terminalia are given for both species. The new finding of E. inaperta in Estonia indicates a possibly disjunct Euro-Siberian distribution pattern of the South-Taiga, also observed in several other species of fungus gnats.
