A preliminary listing is presented of the anthomyiid and muscid flies occurring in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and in the vicinity of Mt. Mitchell. The data are based on collections made in the vicinities of Clingmans Dome and Mt. Mitchell in 1957 by members of the Entomology Research Institute at Ottawa, by the author when visiting Mt. Le Conte in 1958 and 1959 and Mt. Mitchell in 1960 and 1961 and also on an examination of additional material from these regions. Fifty-seven species of Anthomyiidae and one hundred and five species of Muscidae were recognized, of which fourteen and twenty-eight respectively were regarded as occurring chiefly within the eastern and midwestern areas of the United States and transition zones of the Canadian provinces; five anthomyiid and eight muscid species as boreal in habitat; two species of Anthomyiidae, namely, Chirosia delicata (Huckett), Pegomya atlanis Huckett, and one species of Muscidae, Phaonia aberrans Malloch, as restricted in their occurrence to the middle Atlantic states.
