Both males and females of Baeopterogyna mihalyii Matile, 1975 are recorded from northern Greece. Females
are described for the first time providing photographs of the general facies and terminalia. In contrast
to the single congener with stenopterous females – B. nudipes Vockeroth, 1972 – B. mihalyii is shown
to have normally developed wings in both sexes. Association of sexes is based on both morphological
characters and sequence data from cytochrome oxidase subunit one (COI). DNA sequences are used for
the first time for the association of sexes in Mycetophilidae.
New country record from Greece is provided for Sciophila nigronitida Landrock, 1925.
