Abstract A new true dragonfly, named Kachinaeshna zhuoi Zheng, Nel and Wang, gen. et sp. nov., is described from Cretaceous Burmese amber representing the second gomphaeschnaoidine from this deposit. Kachinaeshna Zheng, Nel and Wang, gen. nov. differs from other Gomphaeschnaoidinae in: the absence of an elongate distal paranal cell, directly basal of the anal loop, in the hindwing; a distinct curvature of RP2; and a curve of RP1 at the pterostigmal brace. The gomphaeschnaoidine dragonflies were ...

Abstract The fossil record of Gyrinidae is not poor, with 19 species having been reported previously: here, however, we recognize the first whirligig beetle larva in mid-Cretaceous amber from Myanmar. Cretogyrus beuteli gen. et sp. nov. is described based on a well-preserved individual, differing from other gyrinid larvae by a combination of the following characters: mandibles large; neck region wide; two pairs of nasalean teeth present; cardo moderately elongated; series of small hooks on the l...

Abstract Two new species of butterfly bug, Valdicossus mikewebsteri sp. nov. and Ilerdocossus prowsei sp. nov. are described from the Lower Cretaceous of southern England. Valdicossus mikewebsteri is the first complete hindwing of a palaeontinid from the UK. It is different from the type species in having a hindwing with a different colour pattern, vein Sc + R straight, and branch RA 2 slightly curved posteriorly then recurved; the length of vein RP + MP 1 is shorter than that of the type specie...

The damselfly superfamily Coenagrionoidea is the largest zygopteran group, comprising three-fifths of all extant damselfly species. The Mesozoic fossil record of this superfamily is sparse, whilst it is relatively common in Burmese amber. A new coenagrionoid family, Burmacoenagrionidae Zheng et al., fam. nov., is established here based on four new species in three new genera: Burmacoenagrion pretiosus Zheng et al. gen. et sp. nov., Burmachistigma cheni Zheng et al. gen. et sp. nov., Electrocoena...

Odonatans are quite rare in the fossil record compared with the other insects, especially in Cretaceous amber inclusions. The extant family Platystictidae is one of the most diverse Zygoptera, but short of fossil records. In this paper, a new species, Mesosticta davidattenboroughi sp. nov., is described from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber, representing the third-known fossil species of Platystictidae. Mesosticta davidattenboroughi sp. nov. has a long IR1 beginning one cell distal of the base of RP...

Palaeoentomology started in the late XVIII th century, shortly after the 10 th edition of Linnaeus’ Systema Naturae (the foundation of modern taxonomy), when papers on the curiosities of insects entombed in fossil resins were published. The beginning of XIX th century (with the growing interest in geological sciences and prehistoric life) witnessed the first attempts to study and describe insects from sedimentary rocks. This discipline then developed during the XIX th and beginning of the XX th ...

Abstract True dragonflies are comparatively common in Burmese amber. Here, we describe a new gomphid dragonfly Paraburmagomphides zhaoi gen. et sp. nov., and establish a new family Paraburmagomphidae fam. nov. This family is placed in the clade ‘Oligophlebiata’ because it has a distinctly short CuAa with reduced pectinate branching (found in ‘Brevicubitalia’ and Burmagomphidae), and symmetrical RP branching at the midfork (developed in Hagenioidea and Burmagomphidae). Paraburmagomphidae are char...
