The platy limestone deposit of Vallecillo, located in north-eastern Mexico, offers a wide variety of invertebrate and vertebrate species dated to the latest Cenomanian-middle Turonian (Late Cretaceous). The deposit is known to contain well preserved fossils, e.g., fishes, in which the bones are recrystallized to calcite but soft tissue is also preserved. The fish assemblage is dominated by pelagic fast swimmers but also includes the common pycnodont Nursallia gutturosum, a discus-like and compre...

Abstract Within this study the subfamily Praemordellinae is reviewed and the holotype of Praemordella martynovi Scegoleva-Barovskaja, 1929 is re-described. The genera Cretanaspis Huang and Yang, 1999, Mirimordella Liu et al., 2007, Bellimordella Liu et al., 2008 and Wuhua Wang and Zhang, 2011 is attributed to Praemordellinae. One new species, Wuhua peregrina sp. nov., is erected based on two well-preserved specimens from the Middle Jurassic Daohugou Biota (Inner Mongolia, China). The morphologic...

A new species of tumbling flower beetle (Coleoptera: Mordellidae) Tomoxia succinea sp. nov. is described based on two Baltic amber specimens. The new species differs from the only extant European species of this genus, Tomoxia bucephala Costa, 1854, mainly in the shape of the scutellum and the length ratio of particular body parts. The fossil records of Mordellidae found in Baltic amber are summarized; their paleoecology in the Paleocene–Eocene of the Baltic region and the composition and distri...

Phylogenetic relationships among subgroups of cockroaches and termites are still matters of debate. Their divergence times and major phenotypic transitions during evolution are also not yet settled. We addressed these points by combining the first nuclear phylogenomic study of termites and cockroaches with a thorough approach to divergence time analysis, identification of endosymbionts, and reconstruction of ancestral morphological traits and behaviour. Analyses of the phylogenetic relationships...

Abstract Primaevomordellida burmitina gen. et sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Mordellidae) is described on the base of two well-preserved specimens from Cenomanian Burmese amber. Due to the general body plan and the preservation of elongated pygidium, it is apparently the first true pintail beetle (subfamily Mordellinae). The simple hind leg structures placed the new species into the basal tribe Raynoldsiellini; however, the comparative morphology of the new species shows advanced characters similar to tr...

About 50% of all animal species are considered parasites. The linkage of species diversity to a parasitic lifestyle is especially evident in the insect order Hymenoptera. However, fossil evidence for host–parasitoid interactions is extremely rare, rendering hypotheses on the evolution of parasitism assumptive. Here, using high-throughput synchrotron X-ray microtomography, we examine 1510 phosphatized fly pupae from the Paleogene of France and identify 55 parasitation events by four wasp species,...

Abstract The new family Apotomouridae fam. nov. (Coleoptera: Polyphaga: Tenebrionoidea) is described based on Multispinus multispinosus gen. et sp. nov. and Apotomoura fortiscrura gen. et. sp. nov. from Burmese amber (lower Cenomanian, ca. 99 Ma). The retractile wedge-shaped body and tarsal formula 5-5-4 placed Apotomouridae fam. nov. in Tenebrionoidea. The new family shares similarities with the Mordellidae, whereas the absence of pygidium and the combination of other microstructures assigned i...
