Abstract
Faunistic data on fungus gnats from the county of Møre og Romsdal in Norway are presented and all

species known from the county are summarized in a checklist. Treatment of some 23000 specimens,

collected with one Malaise trap and one window trap for a whole year each, resulted in the identifi cation

of 315 species from a single site at Jordalsgrend, Sunndal municipality. Material from three other

localities in Møre og Romsdal and a few previously published records adds 42 species, bringing the

total up to 357 species belonging to the families Bolitophilidae (11), Diadocidiidae (6), Ditomyiidae

(2), Keroplatidae (11) and Mycetophilidae (327). Ten of the species are considered to be new... (More)
Faunistic data on fungus gnats from the county of Møre og Romsdal in Norway are presented and all

total up to 357 species belonging to the families Bolitophilidae (11), Diadocidiidae (6), Ditomyiidae

(2), Keroplatidae (11) and Mycetophilidae (327). Ten of the species are considered to be new to

science and three species represented with single females could not be identifi ed to species level.

Records of 57 species are published for the fi rst time from Norway, including three species that have

been listed from Norway without any published records. The 34 species included in the Norwegian

2006 Red Data List are commented on. The high species diversity found at Jordalsgrend reveals a

new picture when compared with other surveys in the Nordic region, and may have implications for

future forest management, as boreal-oceanic, old-growth, deciduous forests are underrepresented in

most conservation plans. (Less)
