Abstract

An updated checklist of the Atelestidae, Brachystomatidae, Dolichopodidae, Empididae and Hybotidae (Diptera) recorded from Finland is presented. The genera with uncertain placement within superfamily Empidoidea (= the Iteaphila group) are also included in this paper.

Introduction

Empidoidea (dance flies and long-legged flies) is one of the most diverse lineages of Diptera with some 13,000 species currently recognized worldwide (Pape et al. 2011) and many more still undescribed. The superfamily is generally accepted as monophyletic, but its subdivision into families, subfamilies and tribes is still being debated.

The families Atelestidae, Brachystomatidae, Hybotidae and Empididae were traditionally all included in Empididae sensu lato. Chvála (1983) split the empidids into five families: Empididae sensu stricto, Hybotidae, Atelestidae, Dolichopodidae and Microphoridae. Sinclair and Cumming (2006) analyzed the whole superfamily Empidoidea, elevated Brachystomatidae to a full family and transferred Microphorinae to the long-legged flies (Dolichopodidae). Two of the Finnish genera, Anthepiscopus Becker and Iteaphila Zetterstedt, remain unassigned on family level (Sinclair and Cumming 2006, Shamshev and Sinclair 2009). The classification proposed by Sinclair and Cumming (2006) is adopted for this checklist.

The world fauna of the Empidoidea has recently been catalogued by Yang et al. (2006, 2007). The Finnish species were last listed by Kahanpää and Winqvist (2005) for Atelestidae, Brachystomatidae, Hybotidae and Empididae (plus Microphorinae) and by Kahanpää and Grichanov (2004) for Dolichopodidae. Two updates to the dolichopodid checklist have since been published (Kahanpää 2006, 2013).

Notes

Dolichopus caligatus Wahlberg, 1850 was synonymized with D. flavipes Stannius, 1831 by Becker (1918) but Collin (1940) reinstated D. caligatus as a valid species. True D. flavipes (if it is a valid species) has not been found in Finland but some specimens have been recorded from Northwestern European Russia.

Dolichopus stenhammari Zetterstedt, 1843. Zetterstedt (1838) first described this species as Dolichopus annulipes. Later he proposed D. stenhammari Zett., 1843 as an (unnecessary) replacement name for the taxon: Porphyrops annulipes Meigen, 1824 was recognized in Dolichopus at the time, but only as a junior synonym of what is now Sympycnus pulicarius (Fallén, 1823) (Zetterstedt 1843). Nonetheless this act means, according to article 59.3 of The Code (ICZN 1999), that D. annulipes Zett., 1838 is permanently invalid.

Hilara pseudochorica Strobl, 1892. Erroneously deleted from the Finnish checklist by Kahanpää and Winqvist (2005).

Iteaphila furcata (Zetterstedt 1842). Sinclair and Shamshev (2012) list a specimen from Kuusamo with code label 1546. According to R. Frey’s notes this specimen was collected in 1917 from eastern Kuusamo, an area ceded to Russia in 1944.

Neurigona sp. A is probably N. uralensis Becker, 1918.

Platypalpus articulatus and P. maculimanus. According to Allen (1986) these two names are not synonymous and the species identified as P. articulatus Macquart by Chvála (1975, 1989) is in fact P. maculimanus (Zett.). Upon re-examination, all Finnish material previously identified as P. articulatus belonged to P. maculimanus and P. articulatoides Frey. It remains unclear whether the real P. articulatus occurs in Finland.

Rhamphomyia sp. nr. albipennis. An apparently undescribed species near R. albipennis (Fallén, 1816) (K. Winqvist & M. Barták, priv. comm.).

Sympycnus pulicarius (Fallén, 1823). Pollet (2004) (Fauna Europaea) treats S. annulipes (Meigen, 1824) and S. desoutteri Parent, 1925 as valid species and lists S. pulicarius (Fallén, 1823) as a synonym of the latter but notes that it might actually be a synonym of S. annulipes.

Thrypticus sp. A is probably T. incanus Negrobov, 1967 described from the Leningrad Oblast, Russia (Negrobov 1967).

Trichoclinocera lapponica (Ringdahl, 1933). The type locality of this species, ”Lappland nära Tjuonajaure”, (Ringdahl 1933) is in Sweden, not Finland as stated in Chvála and Wagner (1989).
