Discussion. The holotypes of Achromata fusiformis   , Dim. nuptalis   and the lectotypes of Acrotona lividula   and Acro. adjuvans   agree completely with European specimens of Moc. fungi   (and the syntypes of Aleochara fungi   ) in external characters and the shape of spermatheca.

Distribution. In North America Moc. fungi   is known from Newfoundland ( Muona 1984), New Brunswick, Québec, Ontario, Maine, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York, Minnesota, and Oregon.
