Where in your Diptera classification does the family Pachyneuridae belong? Does it form a separate superfamily Pachyneuroidea under Bibionomorpha? We have one species of this family represented in Norway, namely Pachyneura fasciata Zetterstedt, 1838 (se photo). I belive there is a second species present in Western parts of Russia/Ukraine.

The classification as you give it above is the most up to date one.
