Bottom Line: However, the same species was subsequently found much more south in Lower-Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein although Germany is overall well sampled for sepsid flies.Here we report a further (longitudinal) range expansion based on new localities in Southern Finland.New localities for Finland and Sweden are here added and we discuss briefly the habitat requirements of the species.

ABSTRACT
Specimens of the enigmatic, monotypic European genus Zuskamira Pont, 1987 (Sepsidae) were initially collected only from the lower central Swedish provinces of Darlana, Uppland and Västmanland. However, the same species was subsequently found much more south in Lower-Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein although Germany is overall well sampled for sepsid flies. Here we report a further (longitudinal) range expansion based on new localities in Southern Finland. New localities for Finland and Sweden are here added and we discuss briefly the habitat requirements of the species.

Detailed locality information in results section. Semi-transparent red lines represent the borders of the latitudinal and longitudinal bands in which Z.inexpectata has been found.

Mentions: Initially, Z.inexpectata had a very limited known distribution, lying within Sweden in a narrow 59°N - 61°N latitudinal band from Klacka-Lerberg to Sälen (Pont 1987). The findings by Stuke (2005) expanded the species limits ca. 900km south to 51°N (Nieste, Germany). Our findings further expand Z.inexpectata’s distribution latitudinally, across the Baltic Sea into Southern Finland (Fig. 1).
