The fossil stonefly genus Largusoperla Chen et al., 2018 is reviewed. An annotated checklist including diagnostic characters and an updated identification key to all currently known species of this genus are provided. Generic characters of Largusoperla are summarized based on all available specimens and published descriptions. In addition, a new species of this genus, L. reni sp. nov. is described, illustrated, and compared with similar taxa.

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 A new fossil belonging to the Lindsaeaceae is described as Proodontosoria myanmarensis gen. et sp. nov. from the mid-Cretaceous Myanmar amber. Its classification in the extant Lindsaeaceae is based on laterally fused vein tips that bear sori, indusia opening toward the segment margins, and trilete spores. The number of annulus cells and the size of sporangium suggest that the fossil probably belongs to a stem group element of this family.

Insect faunas are extremely rare near the latest Cretaceous with a 24-million-year gap spanning from the early Campanian to the early Eocene. Here, we report a unique amber biota from the Upper Cretaceous (uppermost Campanian ~72.1 Ma) of Tilin, central Myanmar. The chemical composition of Tilin amber suggests a tree source among conifers, indicating that gymnosperms were still abundant in the latest Campanian equatorial forests. Eight orders and 12 families of insects have been found in Tilin a...

Abstracts Gastropod fossils are rarely preserved in amber with only a few records of terrestrial snails. Two new species, Epitonium ( Epitonium ) zhuoi n. sp. and Epitonium ( Papyriscala ) lyui n. sp. are described based on two well-preserved specimens from mid-Cretaceous amber from northern Myanmar. Highresolution three-dimensional images using X-ray micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) are provided. These species can be attributed to the family Epitoniidae (wentletraps) based on the shell char...

Abstract The fossil dragonfly is a perfect model to study past biogeography. Araripegomphidae is an ancient Gondwanan family comprising the sole genus Araripegomphus previously from the Crato Formation (Upper Aptian) of Brazil. For the first time, a non-rock find, Araripegomphus shai sp. nov., is here described from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. This rare araripegomphid dragonfly extends the range of Araripegomphus to the west Burma block.

Autapses are synaptic contacts of a neuron’s axon onto its own dendrite and soma. In the neocortex, self-inhibiting autapses in GABAergic interneurons are abundant in number and play critical roles in regulating spike precision and network activity. Here we examine whether the principal glutamatergic pyramidal cells (PCs) also form functional autapses. In patch-clamp recording from both rodent and human PCs, we isolated autaptic responses and found that these occur predominantly in layer-5 PCs p...

Niche diversity of pollinating insects plays a vital role in maintaining extant terrestrial ecosystems. A key dimension of pollination niches refers to the insect proboscis length that commonly matches the floral tube length. Here we describe new kalligrammatid lacewings (an iconic Mesozoic pollinating insect lineage) from late Cretaceous Burmese amber and Mesozoic sediments in China. Kalligrammatids display complex configurations of elongate mouthpart elements consisting of well-developed maxil...
