Abstract

Faunistic records for 41 Diptera species from nine families (Anisopodidae, Drosophilidae, Dryomyzidae, Heleomyzidae, Lauxaniidae, Platystomatidae, Sciomyzidae, Syrphidae and Ulidiidae) collected at six sites at Felsőörs and Lovas in the Balaton Highland, Hungary are presented. amongst the material, the species Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura, 1931) (Drosophilidae) and Callopistromyia annulipes (Macquart, 1855) (Ulidiidae) belong to invasive pest species. Thermophilous species are represented by interesting records, namely Suillia gigantea (Meigen, 1830), S. lurida (Meigen, 1830), S. variegata (Loew, 1862) (all Heleomyzidae), Minettia subvittata (Loew, 1847), Peplomyza discoidea (Meigen, 1830) (both Lauxaniidae), and Otites lamed (Schrank, 1781) (Ulidiidae). Furthermore, the disease vector role of Phortica variegata (Fallén, 1823) (Drosophilidae) is also discussed.
