Records of fungus gnats from recent surveys at "Bosco della Fontana", a relict forest of the Po Plain, Italy are presented. Fifty species (comprising 1 species of Ditomyiidae, 11 species of Keroplatidae and 38 species of Mycetophilidae) are recorded of which 12 are new records for the Italian fauna. The additions include three species new to science of which two species of the genus Leia are described here as L. fontana sp. nov. and L. padana sp. nov. and a species of Docosia, which requires further study.
