Seventy species of fungus gnats are reported as new to Finland. Additionally two species are confirmed, increasing the known Finnish fauna to 699 species. Eighteen of the species are also new to the Nordic region, viz.: Mycomya (Mycomya) livida (Dziedzicki, 1885); Neoempheria bimaculata (von Roser, 1840); Phthinia winnertzi Mik, 1869; Sciophila pseudoflexuosa Kurina, 1991; Sciophila setosa Garrett, 1925; Allodiopsis gracai Ševčík & Papp, 2003; Brevicornu arcticoides Caspers, 1985; Exechia pseudofestiva Lackschewitz, 1937; Exechia repandoides Caspers, 1984; Exechiopsis (Xenexechia) perspicua (Johannsen, 1912); Notolopha sibirica Zaitzev & Maximova, 2000; Pseudexechia canalicula (Johannsen, 1912); Dynatosoma silesiacum Ševčík, 2001; Mycetophila exstincta Loew, 1869; Mycetophila idonea Lastovka, 1972; Mycetophila triangularis Lundström, 1912; Sceptonia hamata Ševčík, 2004; Sceptonia thaya Ševčík, 2004. Three species are reported for the first time from the Palaearctic region, viz.: Sciophila setosa, Exechiopsis (Xenexechia) perspicua and Pseudexechia canalicula. The new records are based mainly on original material collected in southern Finland in 2003 - 2004. In addition the collections at the Finnish Museum of Natural History, Helsinki were re-examined for the genera Boletina (in part), Allodiopsis, Exechia, Exechiopsis, Myrosia, Notolopha, Rymosia and Synplasta. Detailed information on Finnish records as well as data on the general distribution and taxonomical notes are given for each species new to Finland.
