Diagnosis

Medium-sized flies with darkened wings (Fig. 7).

Distribution

Europe. Known by a few records from the European part of Russia, Ukraine and Slovakia ( Humala and Polevoi 2009, Jakovlev and Polevoi 1997, Martinovský and Roháček 1993).

Ecology

Poorly known. Larvae were collected from spruce wood ( Mamaev and Krivosheina 1966) and adults found sitting on very damp fir logs ( Martinovský and Roháček 1993). According to Krivosheina (1991), larvae of Axymyiidae   may colonise newly fallen trunks and stay there for several years. This species was collected from a wind-broken aspen, colonised by 7 species of macrofungi Table 1.
