Ctenoplectrella gorskii


Abstract: A new species of the extinct bee genus Ctenoplectrella COCKERELL (Megachilinae: Ctenoplectrellini) is described and figured from two females preserved in a single piece of middle Eocene (Lutetian) Baltic amber. Ctenoplectrella gorskii ENGEL, sp. n. is distinguished from other species of the genus most notably in the venation of the forewing.


First record of a fossil Trinodes larva from Baltic amber(Coleoptera: Dermestidae: Trinodinae). .... pdf.

Globicornis ambericus

New fossil dermestid beetles (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) from the Baltic amber. .... pdf.

Abstract: A new representative of dermestid beetle is described from Paleogene inclusions of the Baltic amber, i. e. Anthrenus (Nathrenus) electron sp. n. This fossil species largely extend our knowledge of diversity of this group in Tertiary.

Attagenus gorskii

A New data on fossil species from Baltic amber with description of a new species (Coleoptera: Dermestidae). .... pdf.

Abstract: Attagenus gorskii sp. nov. from Upper Eocene Baltic amber is described, illustrated and compared with similar species Attagenus yantarnyi Háva & Bukejs, 2013 and A. hoffeinsorum Háva, Prokop & Herrmann, 2006. The new species differs by the structure of its antennae and body shape. A list of all known fossil species of Dermestidae from Baltic amber is also given.

Dactylolabis ( Eobothrophorus ) lauryni

A new species of Dactylolabis ( Eobothrophorus ) from Baltic amber (Diptera: Limoniidae) .... pdf.

Abstract. A new species – Dactylolabis (Idiolabis) ryszardi n. sp. from Eocene Baltic amber is described. It is the third species of this extinct subgenus to be described and is known exclusively from Eocene Baltic amber. The distinctive fea tures of the newly described species are the character of wing venation, especiall y the shape of discal cell, characteristically indented in upper distal corner by the position of dM 1+2 shifted to 1/3 of d-cell, and the morphology of the hypopygium. A parsimon y analysis of type species of extant taxa and extinct species of the genus Dactylolabis from Baltic amber is provided based on 25 morphological characters. The analysis con firms the status of extinct subgenera from the Eocene Baltic amber currently recognized within the genus Dactylolabis and shows the modern and fossil taxa grouped separately .

Dicranomyia gorskii

A new species Dicranomyia Stephens, 1829 from Baltic amber (Diptera: Limoniidae, .... pdf.

Abstract.— A new species of the genus Dicranomyia Stephens, 1829 (Diptera: Limoniidae) from Baltic amber (Eocene) is described. The characteristic feature distinguishing a new species, D. gorskii sp. nov. is the presence of the surprisingly strong and elongate spine on rostral prolongation of ventral gonostylus. The morphological features of the new species are briefly discussed. New replacement name Dicranomyia alexandri nom. nov. for Dicranomyia flagellata (Alexander, 1931) is proposed to avoid with Dicranomyia flagellata Edwards, 1928.

A New Ptinidae (Coleoptera: Bostrichoidea) from Baltic amber with a list of known fossil species .... pdf.

Abstract. The following new species from Baltic amber are described and illustrated: Gastrallus zjantaru sp. nov., Hadrobregmus ambericus sp. nov. (both Anobiinae), Tuberernobius ambericus gen. nov. et sp. nov. (Ernobiinae), Xylasia gorskii gen. nov. et sp. nov. (Xyletininae). List of world known fossil species is provided.

Latridius jantaricus

Dieneremia rueckeri, a new genus and species of minute brown scavenger beetle from Baltic amber, with notes on other fossil Latridiidae (Coleoptera: Cucujoidea)

Abstract Dieneremia rueckeri gen. et sp. nov. is described and illustrated from Upper Eocene Baltic amber (Yantarny village, the Kaliningrad Region, Russia). A new synonymy is established: Latridius jacquelinae Hawkeswood, Makhan and Turner, 2009 = Latridius jantaricus Borowiec, 1985. New fossil records on Latridius jantaricus Borowiec, 1985 are presented.

Microscapha andrzeji

First record of Microscapha LeConte from Baltic amber with description of a new species and list of fossil Melandryidae (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea) .... pdf.

Abstract Microscapha andrzeji sp. nov., the first fossil representative of the genus is described from Eocene Baltic amber. An updated list of fossil Melandryidae (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea) is provided. The presence of Microscapha within Baltic amber suggests some potential for palaeoenvironmental inferences based on the melandryid assemblage within the deposit.

A new species of the genus Orchesia Latreille (Coleoptera: Melandryidae) from Baltic amber with a key to species described from fossil resins .... pdf.

Abstract Orchesia (Orchestera) canaliculata sp. nov. is described and illustrated from Eocene Baltic amber (Kaliningrad Region, Russia).

ABSTRACT. Here we describe a new aphid genus and species Wojciechaphis andrei gen. et sp. nov. belonging to the extant family Drepanosiphidae, also known from Baltic amber (Eocene). The first adult apterous viviparous female of Mengeaphis glandulosa (MENGE, 1856) is described too.

Endophloeus gorskii

New Zopheridae (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea) from Baltic amber .... pdf.

Abstract—Four new zopherid species are described and illustrated from Eocene Baltic amber: Xylolaemus legalovi sp. nov., X. richardklebsi sp. nov., Diodesma slipinskii sp. nov., and Endophloeus gorskii sp. nov. A key to species of Xylolaemus Redtenbacher, described from Baltic amber, and a checklist of fossil Zopheridae are provided. The montane distribution of several recent representatives of dendrophilous zopherids in Europe and the connection of such a distributional type with modern human activity is discussed.
