Abstract

Two new species of Nearctic fungus gnats were discovered in western Michigan. One adult male of Anatella nigrohalterata n. sp. and three adult males of Platurocypta bicorna n. sp. flew to a Malaise trap in an ecotone between swamp and second-growth forest dominated by black ash (Fraxinus nigra Marshall), paper birch (Betula papyrifera Marshall), red maple (Acer rubrum L.), and black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrhart). Adult females and juveniles of both species remain unknown.
