Abstract

An updated checklist of the the genera and species of Anthomyiidae (Diptera) found in Finland is provided.

Introduction

The family Anthomyiidae is a large and taxonomically difficult group of flies that has for the same reason suffered from unstable taxonomy and nomenclature. A checklist of the anthomyiid species known from pre-war Finland was compiled by their leading regional specialist of calyptrate flies Lauri Tiensuu (1906−1980) and published in Frey et al. (1941). The Anthomyiidae were then not recognized as a separate family but combined with the fanniid and true muscid flies in a comprehensive Muscidae family equivalent of the present Muscoidea less Scathophagidae. Tiensuu’s list included confirmed records of 199 anthomyiid species classified in 41 genera and subgenera. No less than 34% of the species names and 58% of the genus-group names in that list are presently replaced by other names for taxonomic and/or nomenclatorial reasons. Most changes were introduced by Hennig (1966−1976) and Michelsen (1985).

The next Finnish checklist of Anthomyiidae by Hackman (1980) was prepared under the influence by two major events. Firstly, 10% of the area of pre-war Finland, notably a major part of Finnish Karelia, had been ceded to the Soviet Union. In consequence, Hackman’s list included fewer species: 175 (too few actually, as he missed a few species recorded by Tiensuu (1936) from present Finland). Secondly, the appearance of Hennig’s (1966−1976) major revision of Palearctic Anthomyiidae had resulted in numerous name changes and redefinitions of both species and genera. Hackman’s list was updated according to Hennig’s proposals except for the splitting of newly recognized species complexes.

After the appearance of the 1941-checklist, L. Tiensuu had stopped publishing taxonomic and faunistic papers on Finnish Diptera altogether, although he stayed active all his life as a skilled collector of Finnish Diptera. Apart from W. Hennig’s study of some type specimens in the Helsinki Museum and a project on mushroom feeding Pegomya (Hackman 1976, 1979; Hackman and Meinander 1979) Finnish anthomyiids were given little attention until the present author in the early 1980’s began a long-term study of the species composition and distributionof Anthomyiidae in Fennoscandia and Denmark.

The web-based database Fauna Europaea ver. 1.0 released in 2004 included anthomyiid checklists (Michelsen 2004) for all parts of Europe. It was based extensively on literature records, but in respect to Finland and the other Scandinavian countries almost exclusively on personally verified records. The Diptera collection of the Finnish Museum of Natural History, University of Helsinki (MZH) provided most of the data on the Finnish anthomyiid fauna. After several updates, most recently ver. 2.4 from January 2011, the Finnish list of Anthomyiidae (Michelsen 2011) had grown substantially to 273 species (http://www.faunaeur.org/). The anthomyiid checklist given below has been further expanded and now contains 289 species. Comparisons with the better known anthomyiid fauna of Sweden and the presence of some species awaiting description suggest that the anthomyiid fauna of Finland may totally comprise 315−325 species.

All nomenclatorial and taxonomic adjustments (new synonyms, misidentifications, changed circumscriptions of species and genera) made since the appearance of Hackman’s (1980) checklist are indicated in the following, updated checklist. In agreement with Fauna Europaea the genera are listed alphabetically, as existing attempts to split the family into subfamilies and tribes are preliminary and in part poorly substantiated.

Number of described species:

World: Presently c. 2000.

Europe: 508 (Michelsen 2011)

Finland: 289 (present paper)

Faunistic knowledge level in Finland: average

Botanophila rotundivalva (Ringdahl, 1937). Misdentification of closely related, still undescribed species first recorded from Ks by Frey (1956).

Delia angustiventris (Zetterstedt, 1845). Misdentification of Delia nudicosta (Ringdahl) by Tiensuu (1936).

Delia floricola Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830. An erroneous record introduced by Hennig (1974).

Delia penicillosa Hennig, 1974. An erroneous record introduced by Michelsen (2004).

Lasiomma multisetosum (Ringdahl, 1926). According to Tiensuu (1936) seen from ”finnischen Lappland” by O. Ringdahl, but no specimens have been found in the Museum of Zoology, Lund University.

Pegomya laticornis (Fallén, 1825) (= genupuncta Stein, 1906). Identification inferred by Hendel (1922) from finds of leaf mines on Arctium by Linnaniemi (1913). Supposed Pegomya-leaf mines on Arctium have been reported from Finland several times since then, but no flies have been recovered so far.

Pegomya nigrisquama (Stein, 1888). Identification inferred by Hering (1925) from finds of leaf-mines on Solidago virgaurea by Linnaniemi (1913).

Pegomya sociella Stein, 1906. Only recorded from Le: Kilpisjärvi (Tiensuu 1933). Probably a misidentification.

Phorbia bartaki Ackland & Michelsen, 1987. Records by Kahanpää (2013) refer to P. melania Ackland & Michelsen.

I am grateful to Jere Kahanpää and Jukka Salmela for inviting me to compile the Anthomyiidae part of the new Checklist of the Diptera of Finland. Antti Haarto, Jere Kahanpää and Kaj Winqvist helped me with valuable information about Finnish records of species and Finnish literature.
