Abstract A new genus and species Gigantobabinskaia godunkoi gen. et sp. nov. (Neuroptera: Babinskaiidae) is described from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. With wing lengths of about 21 mm, this is by far the largest of all known members of the family. Within Babinskaiidae, the new species shows closer affinities to the monotypic genus Electrobabinskaia. The functional significance of dilated tarsomeres in Babinskaiidae is discussed; their presence may point to an arboreal mode of life.

Abstract Three new species of Lebania Podenas and Poinar, 2001 , Lebania podenasi sp. nov., Lebania hukawngensis sp. nov. and Lebania pilosa sp. nov. are described and illustrated from the mid-Cretaceous amber of northern Myanmar. A key to all recorded species in this genus is provided. The three new species represent the second record of Lebania species from Burmese amber, one of which represents the first record of a female specimen for this genus.

Abstract A remarkable new stonefly, Burmacroneuria projecta gen. et sp. nov. is described and illustrated from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. The new fossil genus belongs to the species rich family Perlidae and is perhaps a new member of subfamily Acroneuriinae. It is distinguished from all other perlids by the female subgenital plate partially forming a stalked hammer. Females of ancient Perlidae might be able to produce drumming signals to attract the males for mating.

Abstract We present biostratigraphical and palaeoenvironmental analyses based on palynology and palynofacies of marine and terrestrial deposits that crop out in the central and northwestern part of the Haţeg Basin. Samples were collected from the Răchitova and Sinpetru formations. The former yielded well-preserved palynological assemblages of both terrestrial and marine origin, represented mainly by diverse spore and pollen associations, but with dinoflagellate assemblages of low diversity and l...

Abstract The Haymana Basin, Turkey, hosts complete record of sedimentation across the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary. To examine the K-Pg boundary transition and delineate the bioevents, two consecutive sections (UH and UKHB) were measured and sampled at high resolution. Three biozones were established: Plummerita hantkeninoides , P0 and Pα. A detailed quantitative study on planktonic foraminifera was carried out for the P. hantkeninoides and the P0 zones for 63-150 μm and >150 μm size fra...

Abstract A new record of noasaurid theropod (Dinosauria, Abelisauria) is here described and compared, including the description of its microstructure. It consists of an almost complete femur of small size (132 mm of preserved length) discovered in 2014 in a new locality at Campina Verde Municipality, Minas Gerais state, Brazil. The new locality is named Fazenda Seis Irmaos-Grotas and has also provided thousands of ostracods, few fish remains, and a partial skeleton of an indeterminate baurusuchi...
