A phylogenetic analysis of the Mycetophilinae is presented and discussed. The analysis is based on
morphological characters for 27 genera. Fourteen equally parsimonious trees were found. The
monophyly of the Mycetophilinae and the two tribes, Exechiini and Mycetophilini, is well
supported. Within the Exechiini, good support for the sister-group relationship of Exechia and
Exechiopsis was found, as was support for the inclusion of Cordyla in the tribe. The analysis
provides good resolution within the Mycetophilini, with Trichonta as the sister group of the
remaining taxa.
