Swedish records of Mycomya (Mycomya) storai

Original and used names: Sciophila notata Zetterstedt, 1860:6557. ? = Mycomya storai Väisänen, 1979:109. 

Swedish sources: Sciophila notata: Zetterstedt 1860:6557 [SK]; Mycomyia notata: Wahlgren 1921:166 [SK]; Mycomya (Mycomya) storai: Väisänen 1984:141 [SK]; Mycomya notata: Hackman et al. 1988:227 [SK]; Mycomya (Mycomya) storai: Chandler (2005) [Sweden]; Mycomya (Mycomya) notata: Kjærandsen et al. 2007:99 [Doubtful]. 

Remarks: Sciophila notata was described based on a female holotype. It was studied and regarded as a probable senior synonym of M. storai by Väisänen (1984). Chandler (2005) treats M. storai as a valid species with M. notata as an unconfirmed synonym. The synonymy, thus, remains unresolved and leaves all Swedish records as questionable.
