A new fossil Cacomorphocerus Schaufuss, 1892 from Baltic amber, i.e., Cacomorphocerus coleae sp. nov. is described. Related to C. eocenicus Bukejs, Fanti McKellar, 2019, the new species is characterized by 12 antennomeres that are little modified, with antennomere VI saucer-shaped and asymmetrical, antennomere V enlarged and antennomeres VII and VIII squarish and sub-rectangular. The slightly modified antennae of some species of Cacomorphocerus confirm a relationship with the genus…

A new Eocene soldier beetle (Cantharidae) of the genus †Cacomorphocerus Schaufuss, 1892 from Baltic amber.

A new species from Baltic amber is described, believed to be the first species of Cacomorphocerus discovered with filiform 11-segmented antennae, known to be far more morphologically diversified thanks to these recent discoveries.

A new fossil soldier beetle (Coleoptera: Cantharidae) of the genus CacomorphocerusSchaufuss, 1892 from Baltic amber

A new fossil soldier beetle, Cacomorphocerus endecacerus sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Cantharidae), is described from Baltic amber. Aside from its size (7.3 mm), a unique feature of the new species is the



The first Cretaceous beetle from Azerbaijan: Katyacantharis zherikhini gen. et sp. n. (Coleoptera, Cantharidae) from Cenomanian Agdzhakend amber

Cantharidae, or soldier-beetles, have so far been described from only two Cretaceous amber deposits, but six genera and seven species from Burmese amber seemed to lack soldier- beetles.

New Fossil Soldier Beetles (Coleoptera: Cantharidae) in Burmese, Baltic and Dominican Amber

The new genus Ornatomalthinus in Burmese amber is noted for possessing features similar to lycid beetles (Coleoptera: Lycidae) and for emitting, presumable defensive, secretions from everted thoracic and abdominal vesicles.

New soldier beetles (Coleoptera, Cantharidae) from the Eocene Baltic amber

The paper presents description of new cantharid taxa from the inclusions in the Eocene Baltic amber: Hoffeinsensia jantarica gen. nov. and sp.nov, which are characterised by 12or 16-segmented antennae.

A new Malthodes and some other interesting soldier beetles (Coleoptera: Cantharidae) from Late Eocene Rovno amber

A new fossil species, Malthodes rovnoensis sp.n., is described from the Rovno amber. Mimoplatycis notha Kazantsev, 2013 and Cacomorphocerus sp. are for the first time signalled from the Rovno amber.

Coleoptera from the middle-upper Eocene European ambers: generic composition, zoogeography and climatic implications

The paper contains a review of coleopteran genera known from Baltic, Bitterfeld and Rovno amber localities and the simplified Mutual Climatic Range (MCR) method was used for palaeoclimate reconstruction based on fossil beetles.
