Abstract
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.

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.

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...

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.

ABSTRACT. Description, illustrations and habitat characteristics are given for the previously unknown larva of the eastern palaearctic species Protanyderus stackelbergi (Diptera: Tanyderidae). The larva was found in a Populus leaf “pack”, a habitat not reported previously for the family, in a small stream (braid) of a larger river in Mongolia. Characters of the larval stages of Protanyderus stackelbergi and Protoplasa fitchii are compared and differences between these two genera are discussed.

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.

Abstract The most diverse and best-preserved early fauna of flies (order Diptera) is described from the Late Carnian (Late Triassic, ca. 220 Ma) of Virginia, USA. Complete flies are preserved as aluminosilicate films on very fine-grained shales from the Cow Branch Formation, which is part of the Newark Supergroup of Early Mesozoic rift basins from eastern North America. The dipteran fauna consists of eight families (one new), 11 genera (five new), and 16 species (11 new), and includes the follow...

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...
