Over the last three years, Burmese amber (~99 Ma, from Myanmar) has provided a series of immature enantiornithine skeletal remains preserved in varying developmental stages and degrees of completeness. These specimens have improved our knowledge based on compression fossils in Cretaceous sedimentary rocks, adding details of three-dimensional structure and soft tissues that are rarely preserved elsewhere. Here we describe a remarkably well-preserved foot, accompanied by part of the wing plumage. ...

Summary Recent discoveries of vertebrate remains trapped in middle Cretaceous amber from northern Myanmar [ 1 , 2 ] have provided insights into the morphology of soft-tissue structures in extinct animals [ 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 ], in particular, into the evolution and paleobiology of early birds [ 4 , 8 , 9 ]. So far, five bird specimens have been described from Burmese amber: two isolated wings, an isolated foot with wing fragment, and two partial skeletons [ 4 , 8 , 9 , 10 ]. Most of these specime...

High-resolution 3D imaging technology has found a number of applications in many biological fields. However, the existing 3D imaging tools are often too time-consuming to use on large-scale specimens, such as centimeter-sized insects. In addition, most 3D imaging systems discard the natural color information of the specimens. To surmount these limitations, we present a structured illumination-based approach capable of delivering large field-of-view three-dimensional images. With this approach, 5...

A new subfamily of Scarabaeidae, †Electrorubesopsinae Bai & Wang subfam. nov., is described from Cretaceous amber of Myanmar (earliest Cenomanian, ∼100 Ma) as the possible sister group of Dynamopodinae. †Electrorubesopsis beuteli Bai & Wang gen. et sp. nov. is the first species of this subfamily, which has probably been long extinct. Its external morphology was analysed and compared with all known genera of Dynamopodinae. A phylogenetic analysis based on 82 morphological characters suggests its ...

Four new species of the genus Miridiba Reitter, 1902 from South China are described and illustrated: Miridiba ( Miridiba ) bannaensis Gao & Fang, new species, M. ( M .) kuatunensis Gao & Fang, new species, M. ( M .) xingkei Gao & Fang new species and M. ( M .) youweii Gao & Fang, new species. Miridiba ( M .) tuberculipennis obscura Itoh, 1995 is raised to species level. Miridiba ( M .) obscura Itoh, 1995 and M . ( M .) tuberculipennis (Moser, 1913) are newly recorded for China. A catalogue of Mi...

Frogs are a familiar and diverse component of tropical forests around the world. Yet there is little direct evidence from the fossil record for the antiquity of this association. We describe four fossil frog specimens from mid-Cretaceous (~99 mya) amber deposits from Kachin State, Myanmar for which the associated fauna provides rich paleoenvironmental context. Microcomputed tomographic analysis provides detailed three-dimensional anatomy for these small frogs, which is generally unavailable for ...

The mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber (~99 Ma, Myanmar), widely known for exquisite preservation of theropods, also yields microfossils, which can provide important contextual information on paleoenvironment and amber formation. We report the first Cretaceous ostracod in amber—the gigantic (12.9 mm) right valve of an exclusively marine group (Myodocopa: Myodocopida) preserved in Burmese amber. Ostracods are usually small (0.5–2 mm), with well-calcified carapaces that provide an excellent fossil recor...

Abstract Four new genera along with four new species belonging to three subfamilies of the family Endomychidae (Coleoptera: Coccinelloidea) are described, diagnosed and imaged from Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber: Burmalestes albertalleni Tomaszewska and Ślipinski gen. et sp. nov. , Cretolestes niger Tomaszewska, Ślipinski and Ren gen. et sp. nov. (Leiestinae), Cretaparamecus tarsalis Tomaszewska, Ślipinski, Bai and Zhang gen. et sp. nov. (Merophysiinae), and Palaeomycetes foveolatus Tomaszewska,...
