A comparative analysis of the Baltic and Rovno amber arthropod faunas: representative samples
TLDR
It is concluded that the proposal for the Ypresian‐Lutetian age of Baltic amber contradicts a wide array of the palaeontological, radiological, and stratigraphic data and thus cannot be accepted on the basis of available evidence.
Tropical and Holarctic Ants in Late Eocene Ambers
TLDR
The abundance of temperATE elements in the Priabonian amber ant fauna along with the relatively small number of tropical elements greatly distinguishes it from the Middle European Lutetian ant faunas of Messel and Eckfeld in shale, which do not have temperate elements at all.
A new species of Micromalthidae (Coleoptera) from the Rovno amber: 1. Adult morphology
TLDR
The new species is readily distinguished from M. eocenicus Kirejtshuk et al., 2010 from the Early Eocene amber of Oise in France by the shorter body, unequal length of antennomeres 3 and 4, ovate terminal antennae, less transverse head, transverse scutellum, and by the considerably shortened adsutural elytral margin.
Community Structure in the Amber Forest: Study of the Arthropod Syninclusia in the Rovno Amber (Late Eocene of Ukraine)
TLDR
Three tightly correlated groups were identified, representing a putative aerial plankton guild and two tree-trunk guilds, one of which is possibly connected to more open or/and more hygrophilous habitats than the other (Sciara zone Diptera +“Acorus” rhombeus).
Diversity of Scydmaeninae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) in Upper Eocene Rovno amber.
TLDR
It is concluded that subtropical and tropical taxa were present in the region where Rovno amber has formed, most notably the second genus and species of the extant tribe Clidicini known from the Eocene of Europe, and six species from the extant genus Cephennomicrus, for the first time found in the fossil record.
New Taxa of Chrysomelidae (Insecta: Coleoptera) from Rovno Amber, Late Eocene
TLDR
The taxonomic positions of Manobiomorpha gen. nov, the composition of leaf beetle faunas of Middle and Late Eocene of Europe are discussed, and a new chrysomeline genus and species are described.
A new species of the genus Nalassus Mulsant (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Helopini) from the Baltic amber
The first Eocene species of the tribe Helopini, Nalassus klebsi sp. nov., from the Baltic amber is described. The new species is included in the nominative subgenus and similar to the extant species
