Viktor Baranov, Gunnar Mikalsen Kvifte

Abstract


Ten species of non-biting midges belonging to the subfamily Orthocladiinae were found in samples from predominantly madicolous habitats in Mallorca, Spain. One species, Bryophaenocladius nidorum (Edwards, 1929), has not previously been recorded from Spain, while Smittia pratorum (Goetghebuer, 1927), Bryophaenocladius inconstans (Brundin, 1947), Orthocladius (O.) maius Goetghebuer, 1942, Paracladius conversus (Walker, 1856) and Paraphaenocladius impensus (Walker, 1856) are recorded for the first time from the Balearic Islands.
