The locality “Große Kley” is located in a part of Wolfsburg, Lower Saxony in Germany and is dated as Jurassic, Lower Toarcian (182.7–174.1 Ma). Twelve specimens of Diptera and Mecoptera that were found during house building activities in the 1980s were investigated for the present study. The fossil material is unfortunately poorly preserved, although some are good enough for taxonomic purposes. Three specimens of Mecoptera from the family Orthophlebiidae and nine representatives of Diptera from the following families were identified: Limoniidae, Eoptychopteridae and Anisopodidae. The fossil fauna of Wolfsburg is similar to those from other Lower Jurassic sites in Germany, described by Handlirsch (1939), Bode (1953) and Ansorge (1996).
