New transitional fossil snakeflies from China illuminate the early evolution of Raphidioptera
BackgroundRaphidioptera (snakeflies) is a holometabolous order of the superorder Neuropterida characterized by the narrowly elongate adult prothorax and the long female ovipositor. Mesozoic
The second genus and species of the extinct neuropteroid family Corydasialidae, from early Eocene McAbee, British Columbia, Canada: do they belong to Megaloptera?
If this is a megalopteran, it is the first specimen of the order from the insect-rich Okanagan Highlands series of Ypresian localities, which occur sporadically across the southern interior of British Columbia, Canada into north-central Washington, USA.
The snakefly family Mesoraphidiidae (Insecta: Raphidioptera) from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation, China: systematic revision and phylogenetic implications
A systematic revision of Mesoraphidiidae from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of north-eastern China sheds light on the evolutionary history of Raphidioptera.
Phylogenetic position of Corydasialidae (Insecta: Neuropterida) revisited based on a significant new fossil in Cretaceous amber of Myanmar
The new corydasialid fossil, representing the first extinct lacewing family with completely preserved male genitalia, provides insight into the comparative morphology of genital sclerites in Neuropterida, and further elucidates the early evolution of lacewings.
The presence of the recurrent veinlet in the Middle Jurassic Nymphidae (Neuroptera): a unique character condition in Myrmeleontoidea
The recurrent veinlet in these species of Nymphidae is interpreted as a remnant of the condition present more basally in the psychopsoid + ithonoid + chrysopoid + myrmeleontoid clade (i.e., as a plesiomorphy), and the short ScA terminating on ScP is considered to be an autapomorphy of Neuroptera.
A revision of the late Eocene snakeflies (Raphidioptera) of the Florissant Formation, Colorado, with special reference to the wing venation of the Raphidiomorpha.
The snakeflies (Raphidioptera) of the late Eocene Florissant Formation (Colorado, USA) are revised and venational synapomorphies of Raphidiomorpha are examined and a new diagnosis for it is provided based on these characters.
Los rafidiópteros de la Península Ibérica (Insecta, Neuropterida: Raphidioptera)
The present contribution revises the snake-fly species present in the fauna of the Iberian Peninsula where, to date, is represented by 16 species belonging to 9 genera of both actual families. After
The Khasurty Fossil Insect Lagerstätte
In terms of the composition of the fauna and flora, the Khasurty locality is very peculiar, it includes both Jurassic and Cretaceous taxa, but in general it can be attributed to the Jehol biota.


New snakeflies (Insecta: Raphidioptera) from the Lower Cretaceous of the UK, Spain and Brazil
The geographical range of Nanoraphidia has potentially been extended and several new taxa of snakeflies (Raphidioptera) are described from the Lower Cretaceous deposits of the Wealden, UK, Montsec, Spain and the Crato Formation, Brazil.
Two significant new snakeflies from Baltic amber, with discussion on autapomorphies of the order and its included taxa (Raphidioptera)
The erection of the new subfamily Succinoraphidiinee as the sister group of the Raphidiinae (comprising all other known members of the family) triggers reconsiderations concerning reliable autapomorphies of Raphidioptera, which are discussed.
A review of the snakefly genus Sininocellia (Raphidioptera, Inocelliidae): discovery of the first male and description of a new species from China
The snakefly genus Sininocellia is one of the most enigmatic groups in Inocelliidae, with an obscure phylogenetic status due to lack of male adults, and a newly discovered male adult is described, representing the first male of this genus.
New Snakeflies from the Jiulongshan Formation of Inner Mongolia, China (Raphidioptera)
Two new genera and species of snake flies (Raphidioptera) are described and figured from the Jurassic Jiulongshan Formation of eastern Inner Mongolia, China, which constitute the oldest records of snakeflies from China.
