Abtract Whiteflies (Aleyrodidae) are tiny hemipteran insects with specialized ontogeny and morphology. A new extinct taxon, Paraburmoselis kachinensis gen. et sp. nov., is erected herein based upon a fossil whitefly trapped in the mid-Cretaceous Kachin amber from northern Myanmar. Paraburmoselis gen. nov., as the fourth genus of the Mesozoic subfamily Bernaeinae, can be distinguished from its con-subfamilials by possessing a series of unique features: metatarsi with basitarsomere long, about 1.5...

Abstract The recently erected family Minlagerrontidae, with a series of extremely unusual or even grotesque morphological features, is a bizarre Clypeata group known from the mid-Cretaceous Kachin amber in northern Myanmar. The hitherto known minlagerrontids are ascribed to two species within one genus (Minlagerron). We here report a new genus and species of the family, Megagerron zhuoi gen. et sp. nov., from the same amber biota. The new genus differs from the type genus, Minlagerron, in having...

ABSTRACT Two new stoneflies, Starkoperla longusocollum gen. et sp. nov. and Zwickoperla brevicauda gen. et sp. nov. are described and illustrated based on two well-preserved females in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. The two genera are new extinct members of Perlidae and exhibit distinctive external characters when compared with both extant and extinct perlids. Morphological comparisons have been made between the new taxa and similar taxa.

With the development of electronic devices such as integrated circuits toward the continual increase in power density and consumption, the efficient heat dissipation and low thermal expansion of materials become one of the most important issue. However, conventional polymers have the problem of poor thermal dissipation performance, which hinder application for electronic devices. In this work, the two-dimensional material, MXene (Ti3C2), is used as the reinforcement additive to optimize the ther...

Predation is a major driving force for the evolution of functional forms. Avoidance of visual predators has resulted in different kinds of anti-predator defences, such as: camouflage, crypsis, disruptive coloration, and masquerade or mimesis. Camouflage is one of the forms involving shape, colouration, structure and behaviour when the visual pattern and orientation of an animal can determine whether it lives or dies. Inferring the behaviour and function of an ancient organism from its fossilised...

Abstract Cadmium sulfide (CdS) nanorods are fabricated on Silicon (Si) nanopillars surface via hydrothermal reaction method for the first time. To optimize the growth condition, the thickness of CdS seed film, temperature and time of hydrothermal reaction are researched in this work. It is found that 30 to 60 nm seed layer at the 180 °C for 5 h is the optimal condition for CdS nanorods growth on Si nanopillars surface. The energy dispersive spectroscopy results show that Cd and S elements with a...

Ancient protein analysis is a rapidly developing field of research. Proteins ranging in age from the Quaternary to Jurassic are being used to answer questions about phylogeny, evolution, and extinction. However, these analyses are sometimes contentious, and focus primarily on large vertebrates in sedimentary fossilisation environments; there are few studies of protein preservation in fossils in amber. Here we show exceptionally slow racemisation rates during thermal degradation experiments of re...
