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.

Mentions: An excellent description of Z.inexpectata was provided by Pont (1987) and further discussed in relation to other sepsid genera in Pont and Meier 2002. The specimens from Finland and Sweden fit the descriptions well, but we are here nevertheless providing a high-resolution image of the male lateral habitus (Fig. 3a) and ventral abdomen (Fig. 3b) based on specimens acquired from Finland in 2014 because such images can serendipitously capture morphological differences that may become important in future research Ang et al. 2013a. This image is also placed on the digital reference collection for the Sepsidae, Sepsidnet Ang et al. 2013b​.
