Odonatans are quite rare in the fossil record compared with the other insects, especially in Cretaceous amber inclusions. The extant family Platystictidae is one of the most diverse Zygoptera, but short of fossil records. In this paper, a new species, Mesosticta davidattenboroughi sp. nov., is described from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber, representing the third-known fossil species of Platystictidae. Mesosticta davidattenboroughi sp. nov. has a long IR1 beginning one cell distal of the base of RP...

Abstract As the most diversified organismal group, insects evolved countless structural innovations, and some unique ones have vanished in their geological history. We herein report a new true hopper family Minlagerrontidae Chen, Szwedo and Wang fam. nov. with two new species ( Minlagerron griphos Chen, Szwedo and Wang gen. et sp. nov. and Minlagerron onyxos Chen, Szwedo and Wang gen. et sp. nov.) in mid-Cretaceous Kachin amber from northern Myanmar. The new family, tentatively attributed to Hyl...

Abstract Two new species, Ilerdocossus dissidens sp. nov., and Miracossus gongi sp. nov., and 10 new specimens assigned to known species of Palaeontinidae are described and discussed. All these specimens were collected from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of Inner Mongolia and western Liaoning. I. dissidens sp. nov., is different from other species of the genus in possessing a forewing with outer margin dentate; vein MP 1+2 bifurcating distal of the level of indentation; MP 3+4 bifurcating...

Abstract The fossil record of Gyrinidae is not poor, with 19 species having been reported previously: here, however, we recognize the first whirligig beetle larva in mid-Cretaceous amber from Myanmar. Cretogyrus beuteli gen. et sp. nov. is described based on a well-preserved individual, differing from other gyrinid larvae by a combination of the following characters: mandibles large; neck region wide; two pairs of nasalean teeth present; cardo moderately elongated; series of small hooks on the l...

Abstract The Middle–Upper Jurassic Yanliao Lagerstatte contains numerous exceptionally preserved fossils of aquatic and land organisms, including insects, salamanders, dinosaurs, pterosaurs and mammaliaforms. Despite extensive study of the diversity and evolutionary implications of the biota, the palaeoenvironmental setting and taphonomy of the fossils remain poorly understood. We reconstruct both the palaeoenvironment of the Daohugou area (one of the most famous Yanliao fossil areas), and the b...

Abstract Gakasha calcaridentata gen. et sp. nov. representing Progonocimicidae: Cicadocorinae (moss bugs) is described. It is the first record of Coleorrhyncha in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber and the second in fossil resins from the Cretaceous period. The taxonomic position of some taxa placed in the genus Mesocimex is analysed and new placements proposed. The fossil record of Cicadocorinae is discussed.

Abstract Fossil tiger beetles (Carabidae: Cicindelinae) are extremely rare, and little is known about their early evolutionary history. Here we report the earliest known tiger beetle, Cretotetracha grandis gen. et. sp. nov., from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation (lower Aptian) of China. C. grandis bears several features characteristic of the subtribe Megacephalina, including a large body with total length/width ratio 2.3:1; labium transverse, without median tooth; eyes large; eyes and head ...

Abstract The froghopper family Sinoalidae was previously recognized from the uppermost Middle–lowermost Upper Jurassic Daohugou Biota and coeval strata of northeastern China. Very recently, a froghopper bearing some unique morphological characters from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber was described and placed in this family. Here, a second sinoalid taxon Jiaotouia minuta Chen and Wang, gen. et sp. nov., is described and illustrated from Burmese amber, and a cladistic analysis is also performed to es...
