Abstract The relict family Ommatidae belongs, among other reticulated beetles (suborder Archostemata), to one of the most basal lineages of Coleoptera. Ommatids were much more diverse during the Jurassic and Cretaceous when the family attained a global distribution. Here we report two new species from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber, Stegocoleus arkonus sp. nov. and S. lawrencei sp. nov. A key to the extinct beetle genus Stegocoleus is provided. The characteristically wide epipleural rims of Stegoc...

Abstract With nine described species in two genera, Brachypsectridae is a small and widespread elateroid family. Fossil brachypsectrids have been confined to the Baltic and Dominican ambers, and very little is known about the early evolution of Brachypsectridae in the Mesozoic era. Here we describe and illustrate the first Mesozoic brachypsectrid, Vetubrachypsectra burmitica gen. et sp. nov., based on a male adult entombed in the mid-Cretaceous amber from northern Myanmar, approximately 99 milli...

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...

Staphylininae is the third largest subfamily of the enormous family Staphylinidae. Monophyly of Staphylininae and its sister relationship to the subfamily Paederinae have been broadly accepted according to both conventional morphology- and molecular-based phylogenies until the last three years. Recent molecular phylogenies rejected monophyly of Staphylininae and regarded Paederinae as a clade within it. This paper re-evaluates the recent molecular work, aiming to clarify the relationship between...

Abstract Fossil taxa of the extant megadiverse subfamily Pselaphinae from Mesozoic deposits are sporadically documented. To date merely six genera and seven species have been reported from the upper Albian Spanish and Albian–Cenomanian Burmese ambers. Herein we describe a new genus, Priscaplectus gen. nov., and two new species, P. carinatus sp. nov. and P. grandiceps sp. nov. (type species), based on twelve specimens entombed in amber from northern Myanmar. The detailed morphologies of the new t...
