Species of the families Rhagionidae, Athericidae and Vermileonidae (Diptera) are reported from Corsica. The family Rhagionidae is represented by six species, including two endemic species of Rhagio. Both these species, R. beckeri and R. corsicanus, are recorded from the island for the first time in a century. Most species of Rhagionidae are associated with forest. The family Athericidae is represented by two species, both characteristic of cold, running waters. Three rhagionid and one athericid species are recorded for the first time from Corsica (Chrysopilus laetus, C. splendidus, Ptiolina obscura and Atrichops crassipes). Also, the family Vermileonidae with Vermileo vermileo is new to Corsica.
