Closer examination of material of Macrorrhyncha rostrata Zetterstedt, 1851 from Sweden revealed a mixture of two closely related species of which one, M. hugoi sp. n. is described based on type material from Southern Sweden and Southern England. The new species includes all known records of M. rostrata from England and the Channel Islands. Records of M. rostrata from continental Europe need to be verified.
