The species of fungus gnats (Bolitophilidae, Diadocidiidae, Ditomyiidae, Keroplatidae and Mycetophilidae) occurring in Greece and Cyprus are reviewed. Altogether 201 species are recorded, 189 for Greece and 69 for Cyprus. Of these 126 species are newly recorded for Greece and 36 are newly recorded for Cyprus. The following new taxa are described from Greece: Macrorrhyncha ibis spec. nov., M. pelargos spec. nov., M. laconica spec. nov., Macrocera critica spec. nov., Docosia cephaloniae spec. nov., D. enos spec. nov., D. pasiphae spec. nov., Megophthalmidia illyrica spec. nov., M. ionica spec. nov., M. pytho spec. nov., Mycomya thrakis spec. nov., Allocotocera scheria spec. nov., Sciophila pandora spec. nov., Rymosia labyrinthos spec. nov.; M. illyrica is also recorded from Croatia. The following new taxa are described from Cyprus: Macrocera cypriaca spec. nov., Megophthalmidia alnicola spec. nov., M. cedricola spec. nov. The following new synonymies are proposed: Mycomya tenuis (WALKER, 1856) = M. intermissa PLASSMANN, 1984 syn. nov., Phronia willistoni DZIEDZICKI, 1889 = P. incisa CASPERS, 1991 syn. nov. A key is provided for the western Palaearctic species of Macrorrhyncha WINNERTZ. The composition of the fauna of these families in Greece and Cyprus is discussed in relation to the Mediterranean and to the wider distribution of genera and species.
