Diadocidiidae is a family of Diptera. There are two described genera with over twenty species. Diadocidiidae are found worldwide, except in Africa and Antarctica. It is usually considered close to Keroplatidae, Bolitophilidae and Ditomyiidae, and was previously included in Mycetophilidae. They are woodland flies. The larvae spin silken tubes under bark or in dead logs.
