One new genus of Inocelliidae (Raphidioptera) with one new species and one undetermined specimen is described from the Eocene of North America: Paraksenocellia borealis new genus, new species from the early Eocene (Ypresian) Okanagan Highlands shale at Driftwood Canyon, British Columbia, Canada (a forewing), and Paraksenocellia species from the middle Eocene (Lutetian) of the Coal Creek Member of the Kishenehn Formation, northwestern Montana, United States of America (a hind wing). These are the...

In a recent paper (Jepson et al. , 2018) a new genus of Mesomantispinae from Karatau, Kazakhstan was described. The name given to the genus, Longicollum , is unavailable, because it is preoccupied by a senior homonym, Longicollum Yamaguti, 1935 (Acanthocephala: Pomphorhynchidae). In accordance with Art. 60.1. of the ICZN, we herein propose a replacement name for the genus: Longipronotum nom. nov.

Two new genera and species, and one indeterminate genera and species of fossil Mantispidae, Mesomantispinae are described from the Upper Jurassic of Karatau, Kazakhstan: Longicollum benmaddoxi gen. et sp. nov., Ovalofemora abbottae gen. et sp. nov., and Mesomantispinae sp. et gen. indet. Karataumantispa monstruosa is removed from the genus Karataumantispa and placed in the new genus Ovalofemora gen. nov. due to its different foreleg morphology (stout coxae, trochanter, and oval shaped femur), in...

Two new genera and species of Megaloptera are described from the Lower Cretaceous Crato Formation of Brazil. Cratocorydalopsis brasiliensis gen. et sp. nov. and Lithocorydalus fuscata gen. et sp. nov. are both placed within the family Corydalidae. The specimens represent the first Cretaceous examples of adult megalopteran body fossils not preserved in amber, and are the first megalopterans to be formally described from the Crato Formation.

There are 32 individual specimens of Mantispidae (Insecta: Neuroptera) currently recorded from the fossil record, the oldest of which dates back to the Lower Jurassic. These include 19 described species (in 16 genera), 1 specimen described to genus level and 9 unnamed specimens The specimens have been assigned to the extant subfamilies Drepanicinae (4), Mantispinae (10), Symphrasinae (1), and the extinct subfamily Mesomantispinae (16), with one incertae sedis within Mantispidae. There are curren...

Three new genera and four new species of the extinct mantidfly subfamily Mesomantispinae (Insecta: Neu- roptera: Mantispidae) are described from the Lower Creta- ceous Yixian Formation of Liaoning and the Middle Jurassic Jiulongshan Formation of Inner Mongolia: Archaeodrepanicus nuddsi gen. et sp. nov., A. acutus gen. et sp. nov., Sinomeso- mantispa microdentata gen. et sp. nov., (Yixian Formation) and Clavifemora rotundata gen. et sp. nov. (Jiulongshan For- mation). The specimens described here...

X-ray computed tomography is used to identify a unique example of fossilized phoresy in 16 million-year-old Miocene Dominican amber involving a springtail being transported by a mayfly. It represents the first evidence (fossil or extant) of phoresy in adult Ephemeroptera and only the second record in Collembola (the first is also preserved in amber). This is the first record of Collembola using winged insects for dispersal. This fossil predicts the occurrence of similar behaviour in living sprin...

A new species of fossil lace bug, Phatnoma mattijoae sp. nov., is described from a single specimen in Miocene amber from the Dominican Republic. It represents the first fossil record of the genus, extending its known range by approximately 16 million years. The new fossil appears to be most closely related to the extant P. ovatum Champion, 1897, from Guatemala.
