Starting from the faunal lists from Maramures recently published and the complete series of the Palaearctic dipteran catalogs, published after 1980, I analyzed the range of the species of Dolichopodidae, Empididae, Mycetophilidae, Hybotidae, Syrphidae, Tephritidae and Ephydridae, finding out that the Atlantic affinities are prevalent in the psychrophile species; also the links with the Alpine-Carpathian, Mediterranean, Balkan, Asian fauna are established.
