Abstract
Nymphomyia succina sp.n., the first fossil nymphomyiid fly (Diptera) from the Eocene Baltic and Bitterfeld amber is described and figured, based on four males. A probably conspecific female from the Baltic amber is also described and figured. With the discovery of this species, a gap in the distribution pattern of extant Nymphomyiidae is closed. It is probable that nymphomyiids colonized the eastern Nearctic Region via the Thule landbridge approximately 25-30 million years before present.
