Abstract
A new species of tumbling flower beetle (Coleoptera: Mordellidae) Tomoxia succinea sp. nov. is described based on two Baltic amber specimens. The new species differs from the only extant European species of this genus, Tomoxia bucephala Costa, 1854, mainly in the shape of the scutellum and the length ratio of particular body parts. The fossil records of Mordellidae found in Baltic amber are summarized; their paleoecology in the Paleocene–Eocene of the Baltic region and the composition and distribution of the family Mordellidae are discussed.

Amber is fossilized resin that was excreted by conifers or angiosperms. Plant and animal remains which got caught inside of these ancient resin flows are called ‘inclusions’ and are often preserved with high fidelity. Amber deposits which are remarkably rich in inclusions mainly occur in Cretaceous and Cenozoic sediments. The Eocene Baltic amber is a prominent example which constitutes the largest amber deposit worldwide and is famous for its plenitude of inclusions that mainly comprise arthropo...

Based on six relatively well-preserved specimens from Eocene Baltic amber, Crepidodera tertiotertiaria sp. nov. is described. The new species is illustrated and compared with morphologically similar extant and fossil relatives. It is the third described fossil species of Crepidodera Chevrolat. In addition to the new taxon, new fossil records of C. decolorata Nadein & Perkovsky from Baltic and Bitterfeld amber are presented. A key to species of Crepidodera described from fossil resins is provided...

The new tribe Mediumiugamiini (Coleoptera: Polyphaga: Tenebrionoidea: Mordellidae) is described based on Mediumiuga sinespinis gen. et sp. nov. It is a fossil beetle from Albian (Early Cretaceous) amber from the Penacerrada I outcrop (Spain). It is the first Spanish beetle described in amber. The mesotibiae and mesotarsi bearing multiple dorsalelateral ridges, running oblique, metatibiae without any dorsal or dorsalelateral ridge, only showing a subapical ridge, and metatibiae without apical spu...

The beetle Mordellaria friedrichi sp. nov. is described from the Baltic amber. The new species differs from extant species of the genus in the shape of the eyes and antennae and in the ratios of the length of the pygidium and length of the elytron, pronotum, and anal sternite.

We synthesize data on all known extant and fossil Coleoptera family-group names for the first time. A catalogue of 4887 family-group names (124 fossil, 4763 extant) based on 4707 distinct genera in Coleoptera is given. A total of 4492 names are available, 183 of which are permanently invalid because they are based on a preoccupied or a suppressed type genus. Names are listed in a classification framework. We recognize as valid 24 superfamilies, 211 families, 541 subfamilies, 1663 tribes and 740 ...

A new fossil species of the tumbling flower beetle genus Glipostena is described from Rovno amber. It differs from its recent and fossil congeners in the shapes and proportions of the antennomeres, and the number and position of lateral ridges on the hind tibia.

New results of isotope analysis of light elements (H, C and S) of a dozen Baltic amber samples are described and discussed. Carbon isotope composition was nearly constant (ca. -23‰), whereas sulphur and hydrogen varied in their isotope compositions from +4 to -28‰ and from -171 to -213‰, respectively. The formation and subsequent evolution of this material since its origin in Paleogene time until present is outlined.

Abstract Within this study the subfamily Praemordellinae is reviewed and the holotype of Praemordella martynovi Scegoleva-Barovskaja, 1929 is re-described. The genera Cretanaspis Huang and Yang, 1999, Mirimordella Liu et al., 2007, Bellimordella Liu et al., 2008 and Wuhua Wang and Zhang, 2011 is attributed to Praemordellinae. One new species, Wuhua peregrina sp. nov., is erected based on two well-preserved specimens from the Middle Jurassic Daohugou Biota (Inner Mongolia, China). The morphologic...
