The type material of Mycetophila obsoleta Zetterstedt has been examined. The lectotype of Mycetophila obsoleta is designated and its synonymy with Platurocypta punctum (Stannius) established. A new species, Mycetophila boreocruciator sp. n., is described. The new species belongs to the M. cruciator (Laffoon) group and is recorded from Sweden, Estonia and Slovakia.
