Abstract
Abstract Representatives of chrysidid wasps are described for the first time from inclusions in Late Cretaceous Burmese amber. Five new genera and new species are described and illustrated: † Auricleptes nebulosus gen. et sp. nov., † Azanichrum pilosum gen. et sp. nov., † Bohartiura glabrata gen. et sp. nov., † Burmasega ammirabilis gen. et sp. nov., and † Miracorium tetrafoveolatum gen. et sp. nov. We coded 49 morphological characters for species representing the subfamilies Amiseginae, Loboscelidiinae, Cleptinae and Chrysidinae. The cladistic analysis recovered the following relationships: Cleptinae + († Auricleptes + († Burmasega  + († Miracorium  + ((Loboscelidiinae + Amiseginae) + ((† Azanichrum  + † Bohartiura ) + († Palaeochrum Krombein + (extant Chrysidinae)))))). In light of the cladistic results, we discuss the implications of characters for the interpretation of phylogenetic relationships within the family, and explore the main morphological changes occurred during the diversification of the chrysidid wasps.
