  1. Examination of amber collected by the author from the marine Miocene of Central Sumatra, and of amber from the Philippine Islands has shown the presence of fossil insects in both areas.
  2. Here described and illustrated is the new fossil insect fauna, called the Toksun insect fauna from the Upper Triassic Huangshanjie Formation of Kerjie, Toksun county, Xinjiang. The specimens include 17 species, 10 of which known as new genera are…
  3. Praeratavites daohugou Rasnitsyn, Ansorge & Zhang, gen. et sp. n., Grimmaratavites mirabilis Rasnitsyn, Ansorge & Zhang, gen. et sp. n., and Praeparyssites orientalis Rasnitsyn, Ansorge & Zhang, sp. n. are described from the Lower Jurassic (Lower…
  4. ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: The fossil record has suggested that clade growth may differ in marine and terrestrial taxa, supporting equilibrial models in the former and expansionist models in the latter. However, incomplete sampling may bias findings…
  5. Background: Stem-relatives of many winged insect orders have been identified among Pennsylvanian fossils (Carboniferous Period). Owing to their presumed ‘basal’ position in insect phylogeny, stoneflies were expected to occur at this period. However,…
  6. Occurrence of the well-preserved phthirapteran insects from the Late Triassic sediments of the Satpura Basin, Central India provides the first and earliest record of such organisms in geological time scale. The antiquity of the Order Phthiraptera is…
  7. In a recent issue of Systematic Entomology, Dalgleish et al. (2006) identify their Fig. 1(C) as a mite, ‘probably belonging to the Oribatida, based on the shape and presence of a scutum (reduced dorsal shield)’. While the identity of this mite is…
  8. Three new species are described herein based on tegmina from the Lower Jurassic of the Junggar Basin in Xinjiang, China. They are Procercopis shawanensis sp. nov. (from the Badaowan Formation of Shawan County) , Procercopina delicata sp. nov. (from…
  9. A short review of the representatives of the planthopper family Achilidae (Hemiptera Fulgoroidea) preserved as inclusions in the Eocene Baltic amber is given. Fossil records of the family and its subunits are presented in brief. The evolutionary…
