Introduction

Fungus gnats or mycetophilids (Diptera: Bolitophilidae, Diadocidiidae, Ditomyiidae, Keroplatidae, and Mycetophilidae) are a very rich assemblage of thread-horned (Nematocera) flies with more than 1,100 species that occur in Europe (Bechev 2000, Chandler 2004 and subsequent contributions by various authors). In contrast to many other insect groups, they seem to display an increasing species richness towards the north and are especially common and diverse in boreal forest environments. Research on fungus gnats in the Fennoscandian region has been greatly revitalized during the last two decades, after a period of relatively little activity. At present the north European fungus gnat fauna is the subject of several intensive taxonomical and ecological investigations (see e.g. Kjaerandsen et al. 2007, Kjaerandsen et al. 2009, Jakovlev 2011a, Søli and Rindal 2012, Halme et al. 2013, Polevoi 2013a). Currently, the Checklist of North European (Fennoscandia, NW Russia, Denmark, Iceland) fungus gnats includes 898 species (Kjaerandsen 2012). This makes up a major proportion of the entire European fungus gnat fauna.

Regional checklists have been recently compiled and updated for Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007), Iceland (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007a), and Norway (Gammelmo and Rindal 2006, Gammelmo and Søli 2006, Rindal and Gammelmo 2007, Kjaerandsen and Jordal 2007, Søli and Rindal 2012). The most recent Fennoscandian checklist is available through the Fungus Gnats Online (Kjaerandsen 2012).

A list of Finnish fungus gnats was provided by W. Hackman (Hackman 1980), including 486 species. During the past decade dozens of new species have been reported from Finland (e.g. Polevoi et al. 2006), including descriptions of new taxa (Polevoi and Hedmark 2004, Jakovlev and Penttinen 2007, Jakovlev and Polevoi 2008, Polevoi and Jakovlev 2011). The 2010 Finnish Red List assessment of fungus gnats was based on a regional species pool consisting of 734 species (Penttinen et al. 2010). The 102 red-listed fungus gnat species include 12 threatened species (Endangered [EN], Vulnerable [VU]: Symmerus nobilis, Macrocera crassicornis, Acnemia amoena, Anaclileia dziedzickii, Sciophila salassea, Mycetophila cingulum, M. sigmoides, Synplasta bayardi) and five other species (Near Threatened [NT], Data Deficient [DD]: Bolitophila ingrica, Urytalpa atriceps, Brevicornu cognatum, Synplasta pseudingeniosa, Sceptonia flavipuncta) that have not formally been reported from Finland. These species are treated here, accompanied with exact occurrence data.

The Russian Karelian fungus gnat fauna was thoroughly treated by Polevoi (Polevoi 2000), totaling a list of 616 species. However, dozens of species have been since either recorded or described from Russian Karelia (e.g. Polevoi and Hedmark 2004, Humala and Polevoi 2008, Polevoi and Jakovlev 2011). Species occurring in Murmansk region have not been listed, but no less than 330 fungus gnats were found from a single nature reserve close to the Finnish and Norwegian border (Polevoi 2010).

In this paper we list a total of 64 and 34 species new to the Finnish and Russian Karelian fauna, respectively; 10 of these species are also reported for the first time from Europe. We also report other noteworthy findings of fungus gnat species made by the authors in Finland and Russia (Murmansk Region and Russian Karelia). A total of 131 fungus gnat species are treated. These additions raise the total number of fungus gnat species recorded from Finland and Russian Karelia to 768 and 676 species, respectively.

Materials and methods

The majority of the material presented here was collected by using Malaise traps (Fig. 1). Malaise (length 110, height 140, width 70 cm) is a trap model made of cloth (black sides, white “roof”, or unicolorous) and is suitable for collecting low-flying insects, such as dipterans. The traps were usually installed in the beginning of the snow-free season and removed from the field in September or October. During the deployment, collecting jars were emptied in roughly four week intervals. Two types of preservatives were used in the traps: a solution of 50% ethylene glycol + a few drops of detergent, and 70% ethanol. The collected material was finally stored in 70 – 80% ethanol. In addition to Malaise traps, a minor portion of the material was collected with trunk-window traps, eclector traps and sweep netting. Most of the studied specimens are preserved in ethanol, but for some specimens, KOH macerated abdominal terminalia are preserved in separate microvials in glycerol. The following acronyms for museums and collections are used in the text: MZHF – Finnish Museum of Natural History (Zoological Museum), University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland; FRIP – Forest Research Institute, Petrozavodsk, Russia; JES – private collection of Jukka Salmela, Rovaniemi, Finland; JPJ – private collection of Jouni Penttinen, Jyväskylä, Finland; JJH – private collection of Jevgeni Jakovlev, Helsinki, Finland.

This nature reserve is one of the most famous Finnish herb-rich forests, harbouring fungus gnat species such as Mycomya collini Edwards, Eudicrana nigriceps (Lundström) and Mycetophila sigmoides Loew.

The arrangement of the treated species follows Bechev (2000): Ditomyiidae, Keroplatidae (Orfelini, Macrocerini), Bolitophilidae, Mycetophilidae (Mycomyinae, Sciophilinae, Gnoristinae, Leiinae, Mycetophilinae [Exechiini, Mycetophilini]).

Extended depth of field photos displaying male terminalia were taken using an Olympus SZX16 stereomicroscope attached to an Olympus E520 digital camera. Digital photos were captured and combined using the programmes Deep Focus 3.1 and Quick PHOTO CAMERA 2.3.

Asterisks after species names correspond to: * – new to Finland, ** – new to the Republic of Karelia and *** – new to Europe. Red List acronyms given here follow IUCN categories: DD = Data Deficient, EN = Endangered, VU = Vulnerable, NT = Near Threatened.

Distribution

Palaearctic, besides Europe recorded from Caucasus and West Siberia (Zaitzev 1994). Widely distributed in Europe, including Fennoscandia (Chandler 2004). Recorded only from southern areas in Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007) and Norway (Gammelmo and Rindal 2006). In Finland has been found also in the southernmost parts of the country (as Pleasiastina annulata, Lundström 1909). New to the Republic of Karelia.

Ecology

Larvae develop in rotten wood, feeding on the mycelia that it contains. The species has been reared from larvae found in rotten wood of deciduous trees only: beech (Fagus), elm (Ulmus) and lime (Tilia) (Krivosheina and Mamaev 1967, Zaitzev 1994). Chandler (Chandler 1993) reported the rearing of S. annulatus from a hard ascomycete fungus Hypoxylon rubiginosum. The Karelian specimen was collected from a young grey alder (Alnus incana) forest.

Conservation

Red-listed in Norway (VU, Anonymous 2010, Gammelmo et al. 2010).

Jakovlev; G. Ståhls; identifiedBy: J. Jakovlev; institutionCode: JJH

Distribution

European. Symmerus nobilis was described from Latvia (Lackschewitz 1937) and has been found in several countries of Central Europe (Chandler 2004, Zaitzev 1994), but is considered everywhere a rare species. From the well-studied British Isles it was recorded only from one site in Scotland (Glen Coiltie, Easterness) (Falk and Chandler 2005). In the Fennoscandian region, the species was recorded only recently from southern parts of Norway (Gammelmo and Rindal 2006, Kjaerandsen and Jordal 2007), south Sweden (Jakovlev et al. 2008), the Kivach Nature Reserve in Russian Karelia (two female specimens, Polevoi 2000). No former records from Finland.

Ecology

All collecting records of adults are from broadleaved forests, with the exception of Russian Karelia which lies entirely in the boreal forest zone. The Russian Karelian sites are spruce dominated forests with a high proportion of aspen (Populus tremula). The Finnish record is from a herb-rich spruce-dominated forest with aspen, birch, lime and oak (Quercus robur). Both the Finnish and the Karelian sites are old growth forests on fertile soils with a high amount of dead aspen wood, in which larvae of the species most likely develop. Larvae live in decaying wood, as indicated by rearing records from beech (Zaitzev 1994).

Conservation

Red-listed in Finland (VU, Penttinen et al. 2010), Norway (VU, Anonymous 2010, Gammelmo et al. 2010) and Sweden (NT, Cederberg et al. 2010).

Distribution

Holarctic, widely distributed in Europe (Chandler 2004). Wide range in Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007) and in the Republic of Karelia (Polevoi 2013a). In Finland mainly collected from the southern parts of the country, except for an old record from NW Lapland, Muonio (Lundström 1914).

Ecology

New records from Lapland are mainly from calcareous spring fens and rich fens, but also from headwater streams with rich riparian vegetation. In the light of these new records I. semirufa (Fig. 2) is perhaps not confined to forest habitats, but may also thrive in peatlands. Immature stages are unknown.

Distribution

Palaearctic. Widely distributed in Europe. Many of the older records were made as O. tristis Lundström, a junior synonym of O. lugubris (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007). The species occurs in central and northern Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007), the White Sea shore in Russian Karelia (Humala and Polevoi 2008), and Norway (Kjaerandsen 2012). New for Finland.

Ecology

Finnish records are from rich spring fens and headwater streams surrounded by coniferous forests. Karelian specimens were collected in riparian habitats of the White Sea. Immature stages are unknown. Generally, Orfelia species are web-spinners chiefly associated with dead wood (Jakovlev 2012).

Huge willows; individualCount: 1; sex: male; recordedBy: J.Jakovlev; identifiedBy: J.Jakovlev; institutionCode: JJH

Distribution

European, mainly nemoral, recorded from Ireland, Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and Estonia (Chandler 2004). Few records are known from the Nordic region, from Denmark (Petersen and Meier 2001), Sweden (only a single record, Kjaerandsen et al. 2007), and from Norway, without indication of the collecting locality (Rindal et al. 2008). In Finland the presence of the species was based on Hackman’s (Hackman 1980) checklist. However, the original sources of that record are unknown. In fact, the only exemplar in the MZHF collection “Diptera Fennica” identified as O. pallida actually belongs to Macrorrhyncha rostrata Zetterstedt. New for the Republic of Karelia.

Ecology

The Finnish record is from a herb-rich, spruce dominated forest site adjacent to a sea gulf and a wet meadow with moist black alder stands. Huge willows (Salix) and plenty of dead wood are present as well. Karelian records are from herb-rich deciduous forests and a black alder fen. Immature stages are unknown.

Conservation

Due to the ambiguous occurrence data, the species was not included in the 2010 Red List of Finnish species. However, it is likely that O. pallida is very rare in Finland and perhaps confined to hemiboreal deciduous forests.

Distribution

European. Monocentrota lundstromi (Fig. 4) is rare and poorly known in Fennoscandia. In Norway it is known from two localities in western part of the country (Kjaerandsen and Jordal 2007) and in Sweden it has been collected from a single locality in the zone of boreonemoral (or hemiboreal) forests (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007). No former records from the Republic of Karelia. Finnish records are from southern, eastern and northern parts of the country.

Figure 4.

Monocentrota lundstromi Edwards, male specimen collected from Finland, dorsal view.

Ecology

The collecting locality in Kittilä is a large aapamire (see Fig. 5b for a definition of aapamire), dominated by rich fen vegetation. There are some small birch (Betula pubescens) trees growing on the mire, but the landscape is otherwise open. The specimens from the Republic Karelia have been collected from populated areas and clearcuts. Often attracted to light, active around dawn (Hutson et al. 1980). Larvae probably develop in decaying wood. The only rearing record is from southern Sweden: adults were collected with an eclector trap over a piece of oak log (Mats Jonsell leg., Jevgeni Jakovlev det. 2005).

bSodankylä, Pomokaira, Kaita-aapa, aapamire, intermediate rich flark fen. Moss flora characterized by Sphagnum spp. and Warnstorfia procera. Flarks are wet, moss covered areas surrounded by the narrow, hummock level strings. Aapamires are widespread mire types in the northern and middle boreal vegetation zones of West European and East Siberian plains, and in parts of boreal Canada. Aapamires are minerogenous in contrast to bogs that only receive nutrients from rain water. J. Salmela 6/2012.
cSavukoski, Joutenoja, headwater stream surrounded by boreal mixed forest. Meadow is dominated by Filipendula ulmaria, Angelica archangelica, Viola spp. and Urtica dioica ssp. sondenii. In the forest conifers Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies are common, with mixed Betula spp. J. Salmela 6/2012.
dSodankylä, Heinäaapa, rich spring fen, dominated by mosses Palustriella falcata, Philonotis sp., and Scorpidium cossoni. Vascular plants such as Saxifraga hirculus, Saussurea alpina and Bartsia alpina are conspicuous. 8/2012.
eUtsjoki, Kaldoaivi, Galddasjohka. A diverse headwater stream with luxuriant riparian vegetation. The surroundigns are open fell areas, but a narrow strip of mountain birch (Betula pubescens ssp. czerepanovii) is present in the valley. J. Salmela 7/2007.
fSodankylä, Pomokaira, Paistipuolet NW, poor sloping fen surrounded by spruce mire. Characterized by large sedges (Carex spp.) and Sphagnum riparium. J. Salmela 6/2009.

Distribution

European. Very poorly known species, described from Switzerland, Leuk (Chandler and Blasco-Zumeta 2001) and later reported from Bulgaria, eastern Danubian plain (Bechev 2006). The collecting site of the holotype is apparently mountainous whereas the Bulgarian site is only 150 m above sea level. Also collected from northern Sweden (Kjaerandsen 2012, J. Kjaerandsen, pers. comm.).

Ecology

Finnish localities are headwater streams with luxuriant riparian vegetation surrounded by coniferous forests. One of the sites (Törmäoja, Ahot) is a treeless, sloping meadow with short herbs and grasses on a moraine soil. Immature stages are unknown. The related species, P. zonata has been collected with eclector traps on ground vegetation, moss carpets, and mineral soil under root plate of wind felled tree (Økland 1999) and on decaying trunks of aspen and goat willow, Salix caprea (J. Jakovlev, unpublished).

Distribution

European. Known from England, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2009). Reported here formally as a new species for Finland.

Ecology

Immature stages are unknown. Linnansaari (south boreal zone) is a lush semi-dry herb-rich forest with human influence (most likely former slash-and-burn forest) where aspen is in many parts the dominant tree species with lime, birch and spruce. Collecting site in Salla (north boreal zone) is a luxuriant headwater stream with swampy margings, surrounded by pristine spruce forest.

Distribution

Palaearctic. Described from Finland (Lundström 1912a), later recorded from Ural and Altai (Zaitzev 1994) and from Europe, chiefly from northern areas: Norway, Sweden, Finland, NW Russia, Baltic countries, Germany (Chandler 2004, Kjaerandsen et al. 2007). New to the Republic of Karelia.

Ecology

The species is very rare. There are only four Finnish records, one of these was made more than a hundred years ago (Lundström 1912b, SW Finland, Kaarina, Kuusisto). The only recent finding is from a headwater stream surrounded by a spruce mire (Central Finland, Äänekoski). The Karelian specimen was collected at the edge of a small settlement near a herb-rich aspen dominated forest. Immature stages are unknown, other species of the genus have been reared from soil, clumps of turf, rotting wood and cave walls and are considered predaceous (Falk and Chandler 2005, Ševčík and Roháček 2008, Jakovlev 2012).

Conservation

Red-listed in Finland (NT, Penttinen et al. 2010) and Norway (VU, Anonymous 2010, Gammelmo et al. 2010).

Distribution

Palaearctic. Widely distributed in Central Europe, Mediterranean countries (Spain, Italy, Malta) and found also in Israel, the Near East (Chandler 1994, Chandler 2004) and Northern Caucasus (Zaitzev 1994). From northern Europe only known from Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007) and Denmark (Petersen and Meier 2001). Included in the recent Red List assessment of Finnish species (Penttinen et al. 2010), but here formally reported for the first time from Finland.

Ecology

Larvae are saproxylic. They develop on the surface of dead wood impregnated with fungal mycelium (Zaitzev 1994). Finnish specimens were collected in semi-urban habitats (Helsinki city parks) and in herb-rich forests with exceptionally fertile soils (Linnansaari, Rantasalmi) in the southern parts of the country.

Distribution

A rare European species. Besides Britain the species was recorded only from Northern Europe: Finland (Lundström 1909, as Neoempheria nigriceps), Norway (Økland 1999), Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007), Estonia (Lackschewitz 1937) and NW Russia (Ostroverkhova and Stackelberg 1988, Chandler 2004). However, that Russian ("Northwest") record given by Ostroverkhova & Stackelberg (Ostroverkhova and Stackelberg 1988) may actually refer to the Estonian record given by Lackschewitz (Lackschewitz 1937). A few old Finnish records are mainly from southern Finland; from Åland archipelago and a few mainland sites not far from the Baltic coast (Lohja [holotype, Lundström 1909] Karjalohja, Helsinki, Espoo, Pietarsaari). The new Finnish record is from a much more northern area, SW Lapland (mid boreal vegetation zone). Reported here for the first time from the Republic of Karelia.

Ecology

Although the species is very rarely caught, the available records suggest that the species could be restricted to pristine forests. New findings from Russian Karelia are from herb-rich spruce dominated forest on the SE shore of Lake Ladoga. The sampling locality in SW Lapland (Ylitornio) is a spruce mire dominated by Vaccinium vitis-idaea on the ground layer, adult specimens were collected around a fallen spruce. Larval microhabitats are not perfectly known. Rearing records are available only from Norway where Økland (Økland 1999) collected E. nigriceps with eclector traps over ground vegetation in three different substrates: (1) patch of Eu-Piceetum ground vegetation, (2) wet moss carpet on steep rock in Eu-Piceetum woodland, (3) mineral soil exposed by windfelling of Picea abies.

aMale hypopygium, dorsal view.
bMale hypopygium, ventral view.

Ecology

The Karelian specimen was collected in Vaccinium myrtillus type sprucedominated forest. Immature stages are unknown. Generally, Phthinia larvae develop in webs on the surface of fungal mycelium and moulds in rotten wood. The larvae pupate in silky cocoon (Plachter 1979).

Notes

Plassmann's original figure of male genitalia is sketchy, however the study of the holotype (Sweden, Abisko) confirmed identity of Karelian and Swedish speciemens.

Distribution

European, possibly boreal–mountainous. The species was described from the Italian Alps (Matile 1983) and later recorded from Great Britain (Chandler 2006), and from Fennoscandia: Norway (Økland and Zaitzev 1997), Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007) and Russian Karelia (Humala and Polevoi 2008, Polevoi 2000). The species was included in the Finnish Red List (Penttinen et al. 2010), but is here formally reported as a new species for Finland.

Ecology

Collecting site in Törmäoja is a stream valley with seepages and young deciduous forest. Slopes nearby are coniferous stands dominated by Vaccinium vitis-idaea and Pinus sylvestris. Collecting site in Värriö is a headwater stream surrounded by pristine spruce and pine forest. The male specimen from Savonranta was collected from a decaying aspen (Populus tremula) tree by using an eclector trap.

Conservation

The species was red-listed in Finland (EN, Penttinen et al. 2010) based on the single record from Savonranta. Sciophila salassea is also red-listed in Norway (NT), so far observed from pristine spruce forests (Anonymous 2010, Gammelmo et al. 2010)

Distribution

Palaearctic. Boletina borealis (Fig. 11a) is formely recorded in Europe from the northern parts of Russia (Novaya Zemlya, Karelia, Zaitzev 1994, Polevoi 2013a), northern Sweden (provinces JÄ, ÅS,LY,LU, Kjaerandsen et al. 2007), Norway (Finnmark, Søli and Rindal 2012), and also from mountainous areas of Austria, Germany, Italy and Poland (Plassmann 1984, Chandler 2004), indicating a boreal–mountainous to arctic distribution.

aBoletina borealis, 9th tergite (left, dorsal viewl) and aedeagus and parameres (right, lateral view). Note the curved, long and thin apices of the parameres.
bBoletina intermedia, parameres, aedeagus and 9th tergite (all in dorsal view). Note the spear-shaped, stout parameres.

Ecology

The species is rather numerous in Malaise trap cathces collected from Finnish Lapland in June, less so during July. One of the most common fungus gnats in riparian woodlands and aapamires. Larval ecology is unknown.

Taxon discussion

Boletina borealis is very close to B. intermedia Lundström. These two taxa can reliably be distinguished if internal structures, especially parameres, of the male hypopygium are studied (see Fig. 11). In B. borealis, apices of parameres are thin and curved (Fig. 11a), whereas in B. intermedia these are stout and spear-shaped (Fig. 11b). It is likely that B. intermedia has been overlooked in faunistic surveys, but the material studied here suggests that B. borealis is rather common in North Finland, whereas B. intermedia is locally less abundant and has a smaller area of occupancy. Another species, perhaps an undescribed species close to B. hymenophalloides Sasakawa & Kimura, 1974, is superficially similar to B. borealis and B. intermedia. However, aedeagus of this species is surrounded by a weakly sclerotized membrane and additional differences are present in the sturucture of sternal submedian appendages and parameres. This species, collected from NE Lapland, will be described elsewhere.

Distribution

European. Widely distributed in Europe (Chandler 2004). In the Nordic Region recorded from Norway (Gammelmo and Søli 2006), Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007), Iceland (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007a) and Finland (Lundström 1912b, as B. inermis, holotype male from Nylandia, Helsinki). Wide range in Finland, including the hemiboreal, boreal and subarctic zones.

Ecology

Boletina dubia has been reared from liverworts (Cheetham 1920). New Finnish records are mainly from rich fens, and there are single records from a Sphagnum dominated sloping fen and from a headwater stream with rich riparian vegetation.

Conservation

Due to the scarcity of records until the 2010 Red List assessment, the species was considered to be rather rare in Finland. However, the species was obviously overlooked due to its mire-dwelling ecology. Boletina dubia is currently red-listed in Finland (NT, Penttinen et al. 2010), but the new data provided here indicate that the species is actually rather common in suitable habitats in the middle and north boreal mires.

Distribution

Holarctic. Boletina groenlandica (Fig. 12) was described from Greenland, and displays a northwestern distribution in Europe, including Great Britain, Germany, Latvia, Norway, Sweden, Finland and northwest Russia (Chandler 2004, Kjaerandsen 2012). British records are only from montane habitats in Scotland, mainly by streams above the tree line (Falk and Chandler 2005). All former Finnish records are old (1911, leg. R Frey) and originate from NW Finnish Lapland (Kittilä and Muonio, Lundström 1912b). Old records from NW Russia originate from Murmansk region (Kuzomen and Kandalaksha) and one recent record from Pasvik Nature Reserve (Polevoi 2010). New Finnish records presented here are from the north boreal zone.

Figure 12.

Ecology

New Finnish records are mainly from aapamires, including both poor and rich fens. Some of the specimens were taken from the vicinity of running water. Immature stages are unknown.

Distribution

Palaearctic. Boletina intermedia (Fig. 11b) is a poorly-known fungus gnat, described from Russia, New Siberian Islands (Lundström 1915). In Europe there is a previous record from Germany (Plassmann and Joost 1986) here reported for the first time from Fennoscandia. Finnish records are from the north boreal zone, central (Sodankylä) and eastern (Salla, Savukoski) Lapland.

Ecology

Collected from fens (an intermediate rich flark fen and a rich spring fen) and in the vicinity of a headwater stream. Immature stages are unknown.

Distribution

European. The species was described from Spitsbergen (Holmgren 1869) and has since been recorded in Europe from the Kola Peninsula in Russia (Lundström 1914, as B. longicauda, Zaitzev 1994), Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007) and Norway (Søli and Rindal 2012), and also from Latvia, Germany and Austria (Chandler 2004) indicating an arctic to boreal–mountainous distribution. Only three records exist so far from Finland, from Muonio (Lundström 1912b, as B. longicauda, leg. R Frey 1911), Pelkosenniemi and Salla, all from the north boreal zone. New to the Republic of Karelia.

Ecology

The Karelian specimen was collected in Vaccinium myrtillus type sprucedominated forest. The Finnish specimen from Salla was collected from a stream valley surrounded by old-growth boreal forest. Immature stages are unknown.

Distribution

Palaearctic, known from Russia (West Siberia, NW Russia), Finland, Norway, Sweden and Italy (Kurina 2008, as B. jamalensis, Søli and Rindal 2012, Polevoi 2013b). Boletina pinusia was recently redescribed and discussed by Polevoi 2013b. This species has been misintepreted by European authors as B. jamalensis sensu auct.; true B. jamalensis Zaitzev, also occurring in Fennoscandia, was redescribed and discussed by Polevoi 2013b.

Ecology

In Finland, the species has been collected in tens of sites, mostly in old-growth coniferous forests, also in ordinary clear-cuts and clear-cuts with retention trees treated with prescribed burning. Collected from a decaying aspen tree by using an eclector trap in Finland (as B. jamalensis, Halme et al. 2013)

Distribution

Palaearctic. The species was described from Japan (Sasakawa and Kimura 1974) and has been later found on the Kuril Islands (Zaitzev 1994). In Europe it has recently been reported only from the Fennoscandian region: Russian Karelia (Polevoi 2000), Murmansk Province (Polevoi 2010), Finland (Jakovlev et al. 2006), Sweden (Kjaerandsen et al. 2007) and Norway (Gammelmo and Søli 2006, Søli and Rindal 2012). All Finnish findings are from the north boreal (Sodankylä) and subarctic (Utsjoki) areas, however in Eastern Fennoscandia there are also records from the south boreal zone.

Ecology

The trapping site in Sodankylä is a headwater stream surrounded by coniferous forest. In NW Russia collected mainly in secondary deciduous and mixed forests but also in mountain scrub. Immature stages are unknown.

Distribution

Holarctic. Coelosia gracilis (Fig. 17) is here reported for the first time from the Palaearctic region. The species was described from the USA, California and Colorado (Johannsen 1911) and according to Søli (Søli 1997) the species has a wide range in the western part of the Nearctic region.

Figure 17.

Coelosia gracilis (Johannsen), male specimen collected from Finland, Savukoski (northeastern Lapland). Habitus, lateral view.

Ecology

Finnish sampling sites are headwater streams surrounded by boreal forests, a mountain birch forest and a rich spruce mire. Immature stages are unknown.

Taxon discussion

Coelosia gracilis is very close to the European species Coelosia truncata Lundström, 1909, and perhaps overlooked in the Palaearctic region.

Distribution

Fennoscandian species, only known from Sweden (Plassmann 1987, Kjaerandsen et al. 2007), Norway (Gammelmo et al. 2010, Søli and Rindal 2012), Russian Karelia (Humala and Polevoi 2009) and Murmansk Province (Polevoi 2010). New for Finland. Wide range in Finland, known from the hemiboreal, north boreal and subarctic zones.

Ecology

All Finnish collecting sites are wetlands, in a wide sense. The species is apparently quite common on rich fens in central Lapland (Kittilä) and it was very numerous on the shores of Lake Matalajärvi, Espoo (hemiboreal zone). Coelosia limpida may prefer calcareous habitats. Immature stages are unknown.

Conservation

Red-listed in Norway (DD, Anonymous 2010, Gammelmo et al. 2010).

Distribution

European, wide range in Europe (Chandler 2004). Rather common in herb-rich forests in South Finland, no former records from Finnish Lapland.

Ecology

Immature stages are unknown, but adults have been reared from moss patches and exposed forest soil in Norway (Økland 1999) and from an aspen log bearing polypores (J. Jakovlev, unpublished). However, due to the methods used (eclector trap in situ), it can not be ruled out that adult specimens were already present in the substrate when the trap was set (Økland 1999). Congeneric species G. apicalis Meigen, 1818 has been reared from moss cushions around a seepage in Germany (Lenz 1927).
