Abstract Among insects, 236 families in 18 of 44 orders independently invaded water. We report living amphibiotic cockroaches from tropical streams of UNESCO BR Sumaco, Ecuador. We also describe the first fossil aquatic roach larvae (6 spp.; n = 44, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1) from the most diverse tropical Mesozoic sediments (Middle Jurassic Bakhar Fm in Mongolia, Kimmeridgian Karabastau Fm in Kazakhstan; Aptian Crato Fm in Brazil), and the Barremian Lebanese and Cenomanian Myanmar ambers. Tropic-limited oc...

The first find of Trichoceridae in the Mesozoic of Gondwana and in Cretaceous ambers worldwide, Ewaurista pusilla gen. et sp. nov. is separated into Ewauristinae subfam. nov. demonstrating some venational traits in common with Limoniidae and a peculiar sexual dimorphism. The diagnosis of Trichoceridae is emended, and relationships of the family are discussed.

Myrmecophilous and termitophilous interactions likely contributed to the competitive advantage and evolutionary success of eusocial insects, but how these commensal and parasitic relationships originated is unclear due to absence of fossil records. New extinct cockroaches of the still living family Blattidae are reported here from the Cretaceous Myanmar amber (99 Ma) and are the earliest known inhabitants of complex ant nests, demonstrating that this specialised myrmecophily originated shortly a...

Abstract A new hawker dragonfly Libanoliupanshania mimi gen. et sp. nov. is described and illustrated from the lower upper Cenomanian of Hjoula (Lebanon). Its discovery shows that the Cretaceous family Liupanshaniidae, currently recorded from South America and Eurasia, was also present in the Arabo-African Cretaceous paleocontinent. Also a new ‘libelluloid’ family Libanocorduliidae fam. nov. is described and illustrated on the basis of the new genus and species Libanocordulia debiei gen. et sp. ...

Lepidopsocids are well diversified in recent fauna, but fossil records remain very scarce. Echmepteryx (Loxopholia) dominicanus sp. nov. from Dominican amber is herein described and illustrated. This species is attributed to subfamily Lepidopsocinae Enderlein, 1903 and assigned to genus Echmepteryx Aaron, 1886. This new record is the second oldest lepidopsocid. It is also the first species in this family to be described from Dominican amber and the only fossil record of Lepidopsocinae.

Palaeoentomology started in the late XVIII th century, shortly after the 10 th edition of Linnaeus’ Systema Naturae (the foundation of modern taxonomy), when papers on the curiosities of insects entombed in fossil resins were published. The beginning of XIX th century (with the growing interest in geological sciences and prehistoric life) witnessed the first attempts to study and describe insects from sedimentary rocks. This discipline then developed during the XIX th and beginning of the XX th ...

Sycoracinae are tiny flies with some species bearing functional mandibles and having blood-feeding behavior like phlebotomine flies (Azar et al. , 2007; Azar and Salame, 2015). They constitute a small group within Psychodidae in the modern fauna, represented by nearly 45 species belonging to three genera (Azar and Salame, 2015; Ježek et al. , 2015; Curler et al. , 2015).

Diverse organisms protect and camouflage themselves using varied materials from their environment. This adaptation and associated behaviours (debris-carrying) are well known in modern green lacewing larvae (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae), mostly due to the widespread use of these immature insects in pest control. However, the evolutionary history of this successful strategy and related morphological adaptations in the lineage are still far from being understood. Here we describe a novel green lacewing...
