Mycetophila

Mycetophila fungorum, from here.


Belongs within: Mycetophilidae.

Mycetophila is a genus of fungus gnats in which the costa of the wing is not distinctly produced beyond RS, and the two branches of the cubitus are parallel or slightly converging (Tonnoir & Edwards 1927).

Characters (from Tonnoir & Edwards 1927): Anepisternal and pteropleural bristles present; hind coxae without basal bristle; empodia and hind tibial comb present; costa not or scarcely produced over the tip of RS; cubitus branched, Cu1 slightly divergent from M3 but parallel with or slightly convergent towards Cu2.
