Abstract: A new species of Keroplatidae (Diptera: Sciaroidea), Macrocera rohaceki sp.
nov., is described from the island of Mallorca (Spain). A further remarkable
species, Paleoplatyura johnsoni Johannsen, 1910, hitherto only known from the
Nearctic Region, is recorded from Sicily (Italy). New records of Isoneuromyia
czernyi (Strobl, 1909) and I. pseudochracea (Landrock, 1925) from Slovakia are
provided, including fi gures of the male terminalia. Their relationships to the
widely distributed European species, I. semirufa (Meigen, 1818), are
reconstructed using three mitochondrial DNA markers (12S, COI, cytb). A key to
the European species of Isoneuromyia Brunetti, 1912 is also provided.
