Lakes & Rivers
Adults are found in damp
places and have a very short life span.
Many species feed at
flowers. The larvae feed on decaying vegetation and fungi. A few are predaceous.
Because they feed on
fungi, some species can be serious pests on mushroom farms. Fungus Gnats are
small, slender to moderately robust flies.
Many species are about
the same size as a mosquito, but they have simple antennae and a humped thorax
that hides the head from above.
They have long legs, and
stiff bristles on the thorax and tibia.
