The first Palaearctic record of the mycetophilid genus Drepanocercus Vockeroth (Diptera: Mycetophilidae) GEIR E. E. SÖLI Söli, G. E. E.: The first Palaearctic record of the mycetophilid genus Drepanocercus Vockeroth (Diptera: Mycetophilidae). Ent. scand. 24: 73-77. Copenhagen, Denmark. April 1993. ISSN 0013-8711.

In addition, Vockeroth (1980) gives several other records from the southeastern parts of Canada (Quebec and Nova Scotia) and the eastern parts of North America (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia).
