ABSTRACT. Key to genera of xylomycobiont larvae of Limoniidae and Pediciidae is provided. The key involves 23 genera known from Russia. The structure of hypopharynx, labium and hypostomium are used besides traditionally used external character such as the structure of stigmal area. The key is based on original materials except the hydro- and hygrobiont genera Antocha Osten Sacken, 1860, Geranomyia Haliday, 1833, Helius Lepeletier et Serville, 1828, Tricyphona Zetterstedt, 1837, Dicranota Zetterstedt, 1838, and some Dicranomyia Stephens, 1829.
