Abstract | Full Text

Eight species of the family Piophilidae are found in the mainland Ukraine. Five of them, Allopiophila luteata (Haliday, 1833), Parapiophila vulgaris (Fallén, 1820), Protopiophila latipes (Meigen, 1838), Stearibia nigriceps (Meigen, 1826), and Neottiophilum praeustum (Meigen, 1826), are recorded from the first time from Ukraine. Two species, Mycetaulus bipunctatus (Fallén, 1823) and Prochyliza nigrimana (Meigen, 1826), have been previously recorded only from Crimea.
