Abstract

A new species of the genus Dicranomyia Stephens, 1829 (Diptera: Limoniidae) from Baltic amber (Eocene) is described. The characteristic feature distinguishing a new species, D. gorskii sp. nov. is the presence of the surprisingly strong and elongate spine on rostral prolongation of ventral gonostylus. The morphological features of the new species are briefly discussed. New replacement name Dicranomyia alexandri nom. nov. for Dicranomyia flagellata (Alexander, 1931) is proposed to avoid with Dicranomyia flagellata Edwards, 1928.
