11. Family SCIARIDAE

[Originally] by Wallace A. Steffan

Sciaridae are common faunal elements in nearly all regions of the world but are poorly known because their small size and superficial homogeneity have not attracted collectors or taxonomists. Immature stages can be found in rotten wood, under bark of fallen trees, in other kinds of decaying plant material, feeding in fungi or animal excrement or, in Austrosciara termitophila, as inquilines in termite nests. One genus (Vulagisciara) and new species has been found as a guest in rubiaceous ant-plants in Fiji (Evenhuis et al., 2007.). Some species feed on living plant tissue and can cause economically important damage, especially in greenhouses and mushroom houses.

Recent studies indicate that the Australasian/Oceanian fauna is rich in taxa. The regional literature, with the exception of the faunal studies of Hawaii (Hardy 1960) and Micronesia (Steffan 1969), consists primarily of descriptions of new species. Skuse (1888b, 1890d) described 61 Sciaridae from Australia, but most of the collections were from New South Wales only. The Papua New Guinean fauna has been studied by Mohrig (1999, 2004). The New Zealand fauna was treated by Tonnoir & Edwards (1927) and most recently revised by Mohrig & Jaschhof (1999), and thirteen new species of Bradysia were described by Vilkamaa et al. (2012) from New Caledonia.

This catalog is essentially a list of published names, although some necessarily obvious taxonomic changes have been made. Many older generic placements undoubtedly are incorrect, and types need to be examined before correct generic assignments can be made. Most of the species listed under Sciara should be transferred to other genera after examination of the types.
