Six species of Mycetophilidae are added to the British list from Scotland. These and another recently added species, Mycomya paradentata Vaisanen, 1984 are figured. The female of Creagdhubhia mallochorum Chandler, 1999 is newly described and figured. The new synonymy Phronia vitrea Plassmann, 1999=P. carli Chandler, 2001 is proposed. A new name Sciophila pomacea nom. n. is proposed for the preoccupied name Sciophila ochracea Stephens in Walker, 1856. Mycetophila sigillata Dziedzicki, 1884 of the British list is shown to be M. subsigillata Zaitzev, 1999.
