Abstract The new genus †Burmasphex is proposed for two fossil species, †Burmasphex sulcatus sp. nov. and †Burmasphex pilosus sp. nov., described from Myanmar Cretaceous amber. It exhibits many plesiomorphic features in relation to the extant Apoidea and is here provisionally allocated in the extinct family †Angarosphecidae.
Tracheliodes leclercqi sp. n., a new species of the ant-hunter genus Tracheliodes Morawitz, is described from southeastern Brazil. It closely resembles T. cutucu Cooper, 1988 and the main differences between the two species are presented. Photographs of type specimens of T. leclercqi sp. n., as well as of a female and a male paratypes of T. cutucu , are provided.
The identity of Monedula diana Handlirsch, 1890 is reassessed and the species is transferred to the monotypic genus Selman , which now includes two species, S. diana n. comb. and S. notatus (Taschenberg, 1870). The main differences between the two species are presented. Photographs of the holotype of Monedula diana are provided and its putative type locality is discussed. Also new distribution records are provided for S. notatus .
