A Mesozoic clown beetle myrmecophile (Coleoptera: Histeridae)
A fossil beetle described in 99-million-year-old Burmese amber is described that is inferred to have been a social impostor of the earliest-known ant colonies, infering that obligate behavioral symbioses can evolve relatively rapidly, and be sustained over deep time.

Congruence of morphological and molecular phylogenies of the rove beetle subfamily Staphylininae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae)
The hypothesis that Staphylininae is monophyletic and indeed the sister group to PaederinaE is reasserted using both Bayesian and maximum likelihood inference and is a case-study to show that both outgroup selection and completeness of nucleotide data can influence the outcome of a molecular phylogeny.

The molecular phylogeny supports Histeridae to be divided into seven different clades, with currently recognised subfamilies Abraeinae (sensu lato), Saprininee, Chlamydopsinae, and Histerinae and they are recovered as monophyletic, while Dendrophilinaes, OnthophilinaE, and Tribalinae are polyphyletic taxa.
