Some new information is presented, which supports the view that the species of the genus Cryptoserphus Kieffer, probably alI parasitize fungus gnats (Mycetophiloidea). Published and unpublished host records, or observations indicating the host have been compiled .for the subfamily Belytinae. The scant data available point to various groups of fungus- and soil-inhabiting midges as the host for the Belytinae. Three new combinations are proposed and one new synonym, viz. Acropiesta flaviventns Thomson (= Anectata dispar Brischke syn.n). A lectotype is designated for Cinetus lanceolatus Thomson.
