Abstract A new true dragonfly, named Kachinaeshna zhuoi Zheng, Nel and Wang, gen. et sp. nov., is described from Cretaceous Burmese amber representing the second gomphaeschnaoidine from this deposit. Kachinaeshna Zheng, Nel and Wang, gen. nov. differs from other Gomphaeschnaoidinae in: the absence of an elongate distal paranal cell, directly basal of the anal loop, in the hindwing; a distinct curvature of RP2; and a curve of RP1 at the pterostigmal brace. The gomphaeschnaoidine dragonflies were ...

AbstractFossil insects are very rarely found in sediments of deep marine origin. Nevertheless they can be of great interest to trace past events such as trans-oceanic migrations. Here we document the first fossil insects from Iran, viz. several alate ants dead during mating swarms and a migratory locust, found in the pelagic Oligocene sediments of the Zagros Mountains. This locust represents the first putative indication of insect migrations between the Arabian-African and Asiatic continents thr...

ABSTRACTThe limoniid fly Trentepohlia (Mongoma) pouilloni n. sp. Ngo-Muller, Garrouste & Nel, is the first fossil insect to be described from Sumatra. On the basis of its wing morphology and venation, it is very similar to the extant Sumatran species Trentepohlia (Mongoma) pennipes (Osten Sacken, 1888), supporting a Miocene rather than older age for the amber. By comparison with the few available data on the biology of the extant species of the subgenus Mongoma, it probably lived in a warm and h...

The green lacewings or Chrysopoidea are relatively rare in the fossil record, especially for the Cenozoic, while they seem to be rather diverse and frequent in the Mesozoic (Nel et al, 2005; Makarkin & Menon, 2005). The Chrysopidae seem to be better represented in the Eocene and the Miocene than in the Oligocene outcrops (e.g. Makarkin, 1991; Makarkin & Archibald, 2013). The Oligocene record for these insects is currently reduced to two species, both in the genus Nothochrysa McLachlan, 1868. Her...

Nemopteridae are a small family of myrmeleontoid lacewings characterized by elongated ribbon- or thread-like hindwings. Extant Nemopteridae comprise two subfamilies, viz. Crocinae (thread-wings) and Nemopterinae (spoon- and ribbon-wings). They are distributed in all zoogeographical regions except the Nearctic region in the extant fauna. However, the major species diversity of Nemopteridae is confined to the southern part of Africa. The fossil record of the family is scarce, with five Lower Creta...

Abstract Gunterbechya pumilio gen. et sp. nov., first accurate Mesozoic Gomphidae sensu stricto, is described from the mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. It is remarkable in its reduced venation with quadrangular discoidal triangles, only found in the extant gomphid genera Lestinogomphus and Archaeogomphus , the ‘libelluloid’ Cordulephyidae and the Libellulidae: ‘Tetrathemistinae’. All these taxa are small dragonflies with reduced venation. Possibly the particular quadrangular discoidal triangles of ...

Abstract The new oldest representative of the subfamily Sagrinae, Gallopsis perita gen. et sp. n. from the Paleocene of Menat (France), is described and illustrated. It is distinguished from the genus Neodiaphanops Blackburn, 1899 by the metafemora without teeth, wider pronotum, weakly widened tibiae, bilobed tarsomere 2, subparallel elytra, and narrower metanepisterna. It differs from the Australian genus Carpophagus Macleay, 1826 in the head without rostrum, weakly widened metafemora without t...

Abstract The Puy-Puy quarry at Tonnay-Charente (Charente-Maritime, SW France) is a sand quarry exposing a 9-m-thick series of latest Albian–earliest Cenomanian (mid-Cretaceous) age. The uppermost Albian deposits consist of lignitic clay containing fossiliferous amber. The lowermost Cenomanian sand deposits alternate with clay intercalations containing plant remains. One of these clay levels, named P1, shows an outstanding accumulation of conifer and angiosperm macrofossils including delicate rep...
