ABSTRACT. Flies of the genus Microprosopa Becker, 1894 of Russia, which includes 12 species, are reviewed. Generic and species descriptions and keys for determination of species are given, and data on distributions are summarized. One species, Microprosopa taimyrica sp.n., is described as new to science. Lectotype is designated for Cordylura melanura Zetterstedt, 1838. Three new synonymies are proposed: Microprosopa Becker, 1894 = Allomyella Malloch, 1923, syn.n., Microprosopa pallidicauda (Zetterstedt, 1838) = Cordylura melanura Zetterstedt, 1838, syn.n., and Microprosopa unguiculata (Malloch, 1919) = Allomyella borealis Curran, 1927, syn.n.
