Fossiliferous Cretaceous Amber from Myanmar (Burma): Its Rediscovery, Biotic Diversity, and Paleontological Significance
TLDR
The stratigraphic distribution of exclusively Mesozoic arthropods in Burmese amber is reviewed, which indicates a probable Turonian-Cenomanian age of this material. Expand
A MONOGRAPH OF THE BALTIC AMBER BEES AND EVOLUTION OF THE APOIDEA (HYMENOPTERA)

CLASSIFICATION OF THE BEE TRIBE AUGOCHLORINI (HYMENOPTERA: HALICTIDAE)
TLDR
The halictid bee tribe Augochlorini is revised at the level of genus and subgenus, divided into two monophyletic subtribes: the Corynurina (new subtribe), containing the southern South American genera Corynura, Halictillus, Rhectomia, and Rhinocorynura; and the nominate subtribe,Augochlorina.

Termites (Isoptera): Their Phylogeny, Classification, and Rise to Ecological Dominance
TLDR
The first phylogeny of termite lineages using exemplar Cretaceous, Tertiary, and Recent taxa was presented, revealing extensive grades of stem-group taxa and the divergence of some modern families in theCretaceous. Expand
Family-Group Names for Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)
TLDR
The name Anthophila, as proposed by Latreille, is adopted for the bees as a whole and the suggested current usage of all available family-group names is appended. Expand
Biogeographic and evolutionary implications of a diverse paleobiota in amber from the early Eocene of India
TLDR
Cambay amber preserves a uniquely diverse and early biota of a modern-type of broad-leaf tropical forest, revealing 50 Ma of stasis and change in biological communities of the dipterocarp primary forests that dominate southeastern Asia today. Expand
Primitive New Ants in Cretaceous Amber from Myanmar, New Jersey, and Canada (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
TLDR
From Burmese amber are the oldest, definitive ants, along with ones in amber from Charente-Maritime of France (approximately contemporaneous in age), and a new genus and species, allied to †Sphecomyrma, is described from these deposits. Expand
