Mesozoic chrysopid-like Planipennia: a phylogenetic approach (Insecta: Neuroptera)
TLDR
The Mesozoic chrysopid-like Planipennia are revised and several new genera and species are described, and a phylogenetic analysis of the Chrysopoidea is proposed, based on the wing venation characters.
Thrips pollination of Mesozoic gymnosperms
TLDR
A specialized pollination mode from Early Cretaceous amber of Spain is reported, wherein four female thrips representing a genus and two species in the family Melanthripidae were covered by abundant Cycadopites pollen grains, providing direct evidence of specialized collection and transportation of pollen grains.
An evolutionary history embedded in amber: reflection of the Mesozoic shift in weevil‐dominated (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) faunas
TLDR
Propagation phase-contrast X-ray synchrotron microtomography was utilized to obtain high quality 3D images for some fossils and, at the same time, permit a concise description of them.
New cupedid beetles from the Lower Cretaceous of Spain and the palaeogeography of the family
TLDR
Thirteen new species of the family Cupedidae from Las Hoyas and El Montsec fossil sites from the Barremian (Lower Cretaceous) of Spain are described and placement of genus Cionocoleus among subfamily Ommatinae is proposed.
A New Family of Ceraphronoid Wasps from Early Cretaceous Álava Amber, Spain
TLDR
The new fossils show some similarities with the extinct family Stigmaphronidae but are distinguished from it and the extant ceraphronoids mainly by the presence of not fused radial and costal veins, among other characteristics.
