Abstract A new genus and three new species of Anisopodidae are described from the Cretaceous Burmese amber: Cretolbia hukawnga gen. et sp. nov., Cretolbia burmitica gen. et sp. nov., Cretolbia zhuodei gen. et sp. nov., the representatives of the family in Cretaceous Burmese amber. Analyses of the morphological structures and taxonomical differences among representatives within Anisopodidae have been carried out. A morphological comparison with their closest recent and fossil relatives is provide...

Abstract In the course of evolution, mutualism between pollinators and plants was likely first developed between insects and gymnosperms, since the occurrence of long-proboscid Mecoptera, Neuroptera and Diptera predates the diversification of flowering plants in the Early Cretaceous by at least 60 million years. Here we report one of the most advanced pre-angiosperm pollinator, the Late Jurassic acrocerid fly Archocyrtus kovalevi (Nartshuk, 1996). Re-examination of the holotype specimen has show...

Abstract A new species, Eoptychoptera cantabrica sp. nov . is described from the Albian El Soplao amber-bearing deposits based on a single male with an elongated proboscis, unknown among extant members of Ptychopteridae. It represents the youngest record of the species-diverse genus Eoptychoptera. A pupa of Eoptychoptera sp. with a long respiratory horn, typical of extant ptychopterids, is described from Las Hoyas limestones, where adult fossil ptychopterids have yet to be discovered. A key to s...

Abstract Сomparative analysis of arthropod assemblages found in Cretaceous fossil resins is provided. Arthropod-bearing Cretaceous resin sites are reviewed, and a list of arthropod records (identified to the family level) published up to 2015 is provided. Also, new records of mites, and new arthropod records from the Siberian resins are given. An efficient method for extracting amber from loose sediments in situations of limited infrastructure but easy access to water is described as well. The s...

Abstract A new tribe of Diamesinae, Eugenodiamesini tr. nov. (Diptera: Chironomidae), is described based on a single pupa from Khutel Khara (lower part of the Tsagan Tsab Formation, Lower Cretaceous of Mongolia). The most distinctive characters of the new taxon are numerous multibranched lateral setae on tubercles along entire margins of abdominal segments II–VIII, and a unique setation of the anal lobes, with two multibranched anal macrosetae on each side and one simple near the apex. The fossi...

Abstract The first representative of the fossil Eoptychopterinae (Ptychopteridae) from the Lower Cretaceous of Santana Formation (Brazil), Eoptychoptera braziliana sp. n., is described and illustrated, based on a single specimen. The fossil is the first member of the family from South America and the first extinct Ptychopteridae from the Southern Hemisphere.

The first Triassic dipteran from South America is described based on an isolated wing from the lower Upper Triassic deposits of Argentina (Mendoza Province, Potrerillos Formation, Quebrada del Durazno locality). Trihennigma zavattierii gen. et sp. nov. is a member of the Mesozoic family Hennigmatidae, previously recorded only from Eurasia. A key for the genera and species of Hennigmatidae is provided and systematic position of the taxa is discussed.

The Mesozoic chironomid genus Jurochlus Kalugina, 1985, known only as pupae, is reviewed. Four new species of Jurochlus are described from the Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous deposits of Mongolia, viz. J. trivittatus sp. nov., J. limbatus sp. nov., J. lineatus sp. nov. (Shar Teg, J 3 ) and J. adustus sp. nov. (Khutel Khara, J 3 /K 1 ). Both previouslydescribed species, J. sibiricus Kalugina, 1985 and J. rigor Kalugina, 1985, are re-described in detail based on re-examination of the holotypes...
