Checklist of the familes Chaoboridae, Dixidae, Thaumaleidae, Psychodidae and Ptychopteridae (Diptera) of Finland
Abstract A checklist of the families Chaoboridae, Dixidae, Thaumaleidae, Psychodidae and Ptychopteridae (Diptera) recorded from Finland is given. Four species, Dixella dyari Garret, 1924 (Dixidae),Expand
Local extinction of dragonfly and damselfly populations in low- and high-quality habitat patches.
The results suggest that a good understanding of habitat quality is crucial for the conservation of species in heterogeneous landscapes, and local extinction rates were higher in low-quality than in high-quality habitats. Expand

Macroarthropod species richness and conservation priorities in Stratiotes aloides (L.) lakes
It is suggested that protecting Stratiotes simultaneously conserves valuable arthropod fauna, including A. viridis, as well as the potential occurrence of an internationally endangered Stratiote-habitat specialist, the dragonfly Aeshna  viridis, can increase the conservation value of plant colonies.

Establishing a community‐wide DNA barcode library as a new tool for arctic research
This study establishes the to‐date most comprehensive library of DNA barcodes for a terrestrial site, including all known macroscopic animals and vascular plants of an intensively studied area of the High Arctic, the Zackenberg Valley in Northeast Greenland, to demonstrate its utility. Expand
Description and DNA barcoding of Tipula ( Pterelachisus) recondita sp. n. from the Palaearctic region (Diptera, Tipulidae)
Although variation in the structure of male hypopygium between the Finnish and Russian populations is observed, DNA barcode sequences differ only by three nucleotides, supporting presence of one widespread species of Tipula (Pterelachisus), known from old-growth herb-rich forest (Finland) and Quercus mongolica forest (Russia).

Recent noteworthy findings of fungus gnats from Finland and northwestern Russia (Diptera: Ditomyiidae, Keroplatidae, Bolitophilidae and Mycetophilidae)
New faunistic data on fungus gnats from Finland and NW Russia (Karelia and Murmansk Region) are presented, with a total of 64 species reported for the first time form Finland and Russian Karelia. Expand
Annotated list of Finnish crane flies (Diptera: Tipulidae, Limoniidae, Pediciidae, Cylindrotomidae)
A list of Finnish crane fly species is presented (Diptera: Tipuloidea) and two species that were previously reported are deleted from the Finnish list (11 Limoniidae, 11 Tipulidae). Expand

Semiaquatic fly communities of headwater streams were the most abundant (number of specimens) and their rank-abundance distributions were relatively skewed; assemblages of aapa mires were less abundant and rather even; plants, especially higher plants, may be potential surrogates for semiaquatics fly assemblage composition.

Biogeographic Patterns of Finnish Crane Flies (Diptera, Tipuloidea)
The aim of this study was to examine regional variation in species richness, faunistic composition, occupancy, and proportions of different distribution types of Finnish crane flies to conclude that there are no true endemic crane flies in this region. Expand
