The European species of Sphegina are reviewed, including a new key, complete synonymies, diagnoses, distributional and biological data for all species. The nomenclatural history of the European species is reviewed and reveated that modern workers revise their predecessors' species concepts but rarely do the same for their predecessors' nomenclature. One new species is described (atrolutea Lucas from Spain); five new synonymies are proposed (kimakowiczi Strobl, 1897 = elegans Schummel, 1843; eoa Stackelberg, 1953 and fuliginosa Goeldlin, 1974 = montana Becker, 1921; and loewii Zeller, 1843, rubripes Becker, 1921 = spheginea Zetterstedt, 1838); and eight lectotypes are designated (for eoa Stackelberg, germanica Becker, kimakowiczi Strobl, nigra Meigen, sibirica Stackelberg, rufiventris Strobl, and verecunda Collin).
