Abstract: 9 species of the tribe Psychodini End. are redescribed in this paper. Published
data concerning type-material and type-locality, bionomy and distribution are
summarized and many taxonomic problems are discussed. Lectotype-designation of
Psycha grisescens (Tonn.) is established. Full synonymies of all included
species are presented and all important diagnostic characters are figured,
especially female structures of genitalia in several views. The male of Psychoda
uniformata Has. is described for the first time. Occurence in Czechoslovakia,
Austria, U.S.S.R. and Iran is limited as well as some faunistic results are
included: Psychodocha cinerea (Banks) ,new to U.S.S.R. and Iran, P. gemina (Eat.
