Söli, G. E. E.: The first Palaearctic record of the mycetophilid genus Drepanocercus Vockeroth (Diptera: Mycetophilidae). Ent. scand. 24: 73-77. Copenhagen, Denmark. April 1993. ISSN 0013-8711. Drepanocercus spinistylus sp. n. is described, based on one male captured in a Malaise trap in Jostedalen, West Norway. The genus was previously monotypic, represented by the Nearctic species, Drepanocercus ensifer Vockeroth, 1980. The male genitalia of both species are figured, and a revised diagnosis of the genus is given. Drepanocercus is suggested to be most closely related to Paratinia Mik, 1874.
