Abstract Basing on new materials from Burmese amber, the paper presents a redescription of a female and a description of a male of Parvaverrucosa annulata Poinar and Brown, 2006. Up till now the family Parvaverrucosidae has been included into the “Aphidina vivipara” group. However, new, well-preserved inclusions of this species testify to transferring the family to “Aphidina vivipara”. The structure of apical parts of abdomen suggests that pre-adaptations to subsequent mutualistic relationships ...

The ant-like stone beetle tribe Glandulariini harbours approximately 3700 species, representing more than 70% of the extant diversity of the subfamily Scydmaeninae. Fossil records of this large tribe are rare, and are mostly confined to Eocene to Miocene amber, whereas only four genera were known from Mesozoic deposits. Here we report a new Mesozoic taxon, Pangusyndicus excavatus Yin, Zhou & Cai gen. et sp. nov., from Cenomanian Burmese amber. For the first time the ventral cephalic structures o...

The ant-like stone beetle supertribe Mastigitae (Staphylinidae: Scydmaeninae) comprises nine extant and five extinct genera that exhibit unusual morphological specializations and ecological adaptions. Recent discoveries of mastigite fossils from Upper Cretaceous–middle Eocene deposits have significantly improved our knowledge of the evolutionary history of this group, yet a direct fossil record for two modern tribes of unclear affinities, i.e. Leptomastacini and Papusini, is lacking. Herein we d...

Triassic insect fossils from China are very limited. Here we report on numerous insect fossils discovered in the Upper Triassic Laohugou Formation at Heishanyao, Qinhuangdao, Hebei Province. These fossils are represented mainly by forewings of cockroaches and coleopteran elytra. The insect assemblage is most similar to that from the Upper Triassic Momonoki Formation of Japan. Fossils of the Laohugou Formation have been poorly known, so our discovery of new fossil insects bear significance for un...

A new fossil genus and species of the subfamily Pselaphinae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae), †Cretobrachygluta laurasiensis gen. et sp. nov., is described based on an exquisitely preserved specimen in mid-Cretaceous amber from northern Myanmar. The new genus possesses a series of characters diagnostic of the extant Brachyglutini: Brachyglutina (supertribe Goniaceritae), but it also exhibits several plesiomorphic traits that suggest a basal position within the tribe. The discovery of the first and ol...

The Shanwang Fauna has been one of the well-known Miocene Konservat-Lagerstatten for a long time, but the high-fidelity preservation of the fossils has been often ignored. This paper illustrates the exceptional preservation displayed by some fossil insects from the Shanwang Formation. The microstructures of the preserved exoskeletons were analyzed using a scanning electron microscope and a transmission electron microscope. The epicuticle, procuticle, and some fine details such as cuticular scale...
