Geir Søli, Jostein Kjaerandsen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Fiftythree species are reported new to Norway, and their distribution and biology are commented on. Among the new Norwegian species, Anatella alpina Plassmann, 1977 and Trichonta tristis (Strobl, 1898) are also new to the Nordic region. The total number of species of Mycetophilidae in Norway is thus increased to 575. The majority of the species added forms an extension of the boreal taiga fauna into Norway, including nine more or less mountainous species, while only three species display a southern nemoral to boreonemoral distribution.
