Abstract
AbstractA new genus and species, Espanoderus barbarae gen. et sp. nov., belonging to the family Tanyderidae (Diptera, Nematocera), is described from Lower Cretaceous amber of Spain (Alava amber). The new genus is the smallest member of Tanyderinae and the first member of the family from the Alava amber. The position of the new genus in a phylogenetic tree of Tanyderidae is presented.http://zoobank.org/urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:EC3284BA-C07F-48AC-8AF5-4F9D2EF4EA6C

Abstract The Lower Cretaceous deposits of the southern margin of the Basque-Cantabrian basin (northern Spain) are characterised by continental deposits interbedded with amber-bearing marine-influenced facies. These facies crop out in various localities and have yielded well-preserved palynological assemblages. The palynoflora is dominated by gymnosperm pollen grains, and shows relatively diversified spore content but scarce dinoflagellate cysts. The palynofloral evidence and regional geological ...

Wings of the oldest known tanyderid flyNannotanyderus krzeminskii gen. et sp. nov. and the oldest known psychodidsTanypsycha connexa gen. et sp. nov. andLiassopsychodina pommerana gen. et sp. nov. are described from the Lower Jurassic (Toarcian) of NE-Germany. A review of tanyderids and psychodids in the fossil record is given. The very similar venational pattern of the wings ofNannotanyderus krzeminskii andTanypsycha connexa andLiassopsychodina pommerana supports the close relationship between ...

Macrochile hornei sp. nov. from Baltic amber (Upper Eocene) is described and illustrated. Podemacrochile gen. nov. is described with Podemacrochile baltica (Podenas, 1997) as type species. A key to the genera and species of Tanyderidae known from Baltic amber is presented.

A new genus and species, Similinannotanyderus lii gen. et sp. nov., is described from Myanmar amber. It differs from other genera of Tanyderidae based on special characters of wing venation and male genitalia. This new taxon broadens the diversity of Tanyderidae in the Cretaceous, and its morphological characters enhance our understanding of the development and evolution of the primitive crane flies.

Larvae, pupae and adults of Araucoderus gloriosus (Alexander) were collected during fieldwork in Chilean Patagonia, December 2013 and January 2014. Eggs were obtained from females that oviposited in captivity. Association of all life stages is based on co-occurrence and rearing of individual larvae to adults. A diagnosis for the genus and species is provided. Descriptions of the egg, larva and pupa and redescriptions of the male and female are completed. Eggs of A. gloriosus are the first descri...

ABSTRACTTwo new species of primitive crane flies (Diptera,Tanyderidae), Dacochile browni n. sp. and Dacochile poinari n. sp. from the Cretaceous Burmese are described and figured. Moreover, an additional drawing and description of Dacochile microsoma Poinar & Brownis provided. A new material supports the classification of this genus in Tanyderidae, and not Psychodidae. The evolution of anal lobe in the genus Dacochile is discussed.
