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 ...

The damselfly superfamily Coenagrionoidea is the largest zygopteran group, comprising three-fifths of all extant damselfly species. The Mesozoic fossil record of this superfamily is sparse, whilst it is relatively common in Burmese amber. A new coenagrionoid family, Burmacoenagrionidae Zheng et al., fam. nov., is established here based on four new species in three new genera: Burmacoenagrion pretiosus Zheng et al. gen. et sp. nov., Burmachistigma cheni Zheng et al. gen. et sp. nov., Electrocoena...

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. ...

Abstract Burmastenophlebia flecki gen. et sp. nov., first stenophlebiid damsel-dragonfly in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber is described and illustrated. It allows to show structures proper to this family, previously unknown. In particular, the subnodus is enforced by a dorsal chitinous bracket and the nodal furrow is very weak, suggesting that the stenophlebiid nodal complex is very particular and did not functioned as in other Odonata.

Eoblissus gallicus gen. et sp. nov. , first accurate fossil Blissidae, is described from the Lowermost Eocene amber of France. This fossil is of interest for future calibrations regarding phylogenetic dating of the Lygaeoidea.

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 Steleopteron cretacicus sp. nov., first Cretaceous and most recent representative of the small Mesozoic family Steleopteridae, is described from the Wealden of the UK. This discovery shows that this Jurassic family survived into the Cretaceous. It probably became extinct during or after the great entomofaunal changes of the Albian – Cenomanian event.

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...
