Fungus gnats belonging to the Sciaridae family live especially in damp places, preferring lower parts of plants that are closer to soil. The fossil fungus gnat pictured is 128 million years old. Fungus gnats that lived millions of years ago are just as those of our day. Fossil records show that fungus gnats have always remained the same, refuting the claim that they evolved from other living beings.
