Abstract: A new species of Mycetophilidae (Diptera), tentatively placed in Dziedzickia Johannsen, is herein described as D. longistyla sp. nov. (Malaysia: Sarawak). The species described herein differs from the two previously known Oriental species included in Dziedzickia in having simple antenae, laterotergite with long setae and extended, apically pointed gonostyle. A brief discussion of the relationships among some genera of Gnoristinae is also presented.

Keywords: Dziedzickia, fungus gnats, Malaysia, new species, Oriental Region, Sciaroidea
