A '''gnat''' {{IPAc-en|ˈ|n|æ|t}} is any of many species of tiny flying [[insect]]s in the [[Diptera|Dipterid]] suborder [[Nematocera]], especially those in the families [[Mycetophilidae]], [[Anisopodidae]] and [[Sciaridae]].

A '''gnat''' {{IPAc-en|ˈ|n|æ|t}} is any of many species of tiny flying [[insect]]s in the [[Diptera|Dipterid]] suborder [[Nematocera]], especially those in the families [[hoe]], [[hoe]] and [[hoe]].
   
 
In British English, the term applies particularly to Nematocerans of the family [[Culicidae]] (mosquitoes). The '''common gnat''' is the species ''[[Culex pipiens]]''.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/gnat|title=Definition of gnat in English |publisher=Oxford Dictionaries|accessdate=2013-07-31}}</ref>

Gnat larvae are mostly free-living and some are [[Aquatic insects|aquatic]]. Many feed on plants, though some are [[carnivorous]]. [[Larva]]l plant feeders (such as the [[Hessian fly]] larva) cause root, stem, or leaf [[gall]]s to be formed by the host plant. Some species of [[fungus gnat]]s (families [[Mycetophilidae]] and [[Sciaridae]]) are pests of [[mushroom]]s and roots of potted plants in homes and [[greenhouse]]s.

Some [[South America]]n [[Pleurothallidinae|Pleurothallid]] [[orchid]]s are pollinated by tiny gnats and have correspondingly small [[flower]]s.
