Abstract
Abstract A new species of Tanyderidae (Diptera, Nematocera), Similinannotanyderus zbigniewi sp. nov., belonging to the family Tanyderidae is described and figured. It is the second representative of this genus from the Upper Cretaceous Myanmar amber. The complete drawing of a wing and additional drawing of male genitalia of Similinannotanyderus lii Dong, Shih & Ren, 2015a have been provided.

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.

In this chapter, the authors describe a new species, Nannotanyderus ansorgei , belonging to Tanyderidae (Diptera, Nematocera) that is described and figured from the Lower Cretaceous amber of Lebanon. The Lebanese amber specimen is a well-preserved male member with wings’ venation, somehow comparable to Jurassic specimen Nannotanyderus krzeminskii . Nannotanyderus ansorgei sp. n. shares some features with psychodids and others with tanyderids. The chapter also illustrates a male specimen of the s...

Amber from northern Myanmar has been commercially exploited for millennia, and it also preserves the most diverse palaeobiota among the worlds' seven major deposits of Cretaceous amber. Recent estimated ages vary from Albian to Cenomanian, based on palynology, an ammonoid, and Mesozoic insect taxa preserved within the amber. The burmite-bearing rock is sedimentaryand consists mainly of rounded lithic clasts (0.03w0.15 mm in diameter), with minor fragments of quartz and feldspar. Among the lithic...

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.

An examination of character states in a second Burmese amber specimen of Dacochile microsoma Poinar & Brown from the type locality confirms the original placement of this species in the family Tanyderidae and not the Bruchomyiinae, as proposed by Woodley (2005). Of special interest are a row of heavily sclerotized processes shaped like rose thorns and positioned on the inside of the hind tibiae and first two tarsal segments. These processes, which point upward towards the body, suggest that at l...

A review of the characters used by Poinar & Brown (2004) to place their new fossil fly from Burmese amber, Dacochile microsoma, in the family Tanyderidae conclusively demonstrates that the fly actually belongs to the subfamily Bruchomyiinae in the family Psychodidae.

Abstract Amber (‘Burmite’) from the Hukawng Valley of Myanmar has been known since at least the 1st century AD. It is currently being produced from a hill known as Noije Bum, which was first documented as a source of amber in 1836. Several geologists visited the locality between 1892 and 1930. All of them believed that the host rocks to the amber are Tertiary (most said Eocene) in age, and this conclusion has been widely quoted in the literature. However, recent work indicates a Cretaceous age. ...

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.
