Diadocidiidae

Diadocidiidae is a family of Diptera. There are two described genera with over twenty species.[2][3] Diadocidiidae are found worldwide, except in Africa and Antarctica. It is usually considered close to Keroplatidae, Bolitophilidae and Ditomyiidae,[4] and was previously included in Mycetophilidae. They are woodland flies. The larvae spin silken tubes under bark or in dead logs.
