—The supraspecific, extinct and extant fauna of Mymarommatoidea (Hymenoptera) is revised. Ten extinct and ten extant described species are classified in six genera and two families, Mymarommatidae and Gallorommatidae n. fam. A key to the families and genera is provided. Classified in Gallorommatidae is the extinct Cretaceous genus, Galloromma Schliiter, including the type species, G. bezonnaisensis Schliiter, and G. agapa (Kozlov and Rasnitsyn) n. comb, (from Palaeomymar). Classified in… 
A New Lineage of Enigmatic Diaprioid Wasps in Cretaceous Amber (Hymenoptera: Diaprioidea)
TLDR
A new family of microhymenopteran wasps is described and figured from three new species discovered in Cretaceous amber of Spain (Albian) and New Jersey (Turonian) and possible relationships to the surviving lineages of diaprioids are discussed.
Compression fossil Mymaridae (Hymenoptera) from Kishenehn oil shales, with description of two new genera and review of Tertiary amber genera
TLDR
Compression fossils of three genera and six species of Mymaridae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) are described from 46 million year old Kishenehn oil shales in Montana, USA, and five genera in Baltic amber are tentatively recorded as fossils.
Description of Leptoomus janzeni , n. gen. and n. sp. (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) from Baltic amber, and discussion of its relationships and classification relative to Eupelmidae, Tanaostigmatidae and Encyrtidae
Leptoomus janzeni, n. gen. and n. sp., is described from 5 females and 2 males in 7 pieces of Baltic amber. An enlarged acropleuron forming the entire mesopleuron places the taxon within Eupelmidae,
The genus Mymaromella (Hymenoptera: Mymarommatidae) in North America, with a key to described extant species
A key is given to the five described extant species of Mymaromella. Two new species, Mymaromella pala Huber & Gibson, sp. n. and M. palella Huber & Gibson, sp. n. (Mymarommatoidea: Mymarommatidae),
A new lineage of Cretaceous jewel wasps (Chalcidoidea: Diversinitidae)
TLDR
Along with mymarid fossils and a few species of uncertain phylogenetic placement, the newly described members of Diversinitidae are among the earliest known chalcidoids and advance the authors' knowledge of their Cretaceous diversity.
A new genus of fossil Mymaridae (Hymenoptera) from Cretaceous amber and key to Cretaceous mymarid genera
TLDR
Myanmymar aresconoides is the fifth mymarid genus definitely referable to the Cretaceous period and unique among Mymaridae in having distinctly segmented palpi.
False fairy wasps in Early Cretaceous amber from Spain (Hymenoptera: Mymarommatoidea)
TLDR
The study indicates the necessity of revision and maybe fusion of both superfamilies, Mymarommatoidea and Serphitoidea, as the boundaries between them are less and less defined, but major classificatory rearrangements must await the completion of the cladistic studies presently underway.
Fossil Eucharitidae and Perilampidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) from Baltic Amber
TLDR
The phylogenetic placement of both genera is discussed based on an analysis of both a combined morphological and molecular (28S and 18S and morphology-only matrix), with some characters revised to reflect variation in Perilampinae.

TLDR
Over 6800 specimens from 18 families of Chalcidoidea and Mymarommatoidea have been collected over 6 years by different capture methods in a Juniperus thurifera L. forest in the Monegros area (Zaragoza, Spain), and 359 species have been identified beyond doubt.
Mymarommatoidea, a Superfamily of Hymenoptera New for the Hawaiian Islands
The family Mymarommatidae, represented by an unidentified species of Palaeomymar Meunier related to P. goethei (Girault), is reported for the first time from the Hawaiian Islands. The first Hawaiian
Habitat of a new Mymarommatidae: found in southern Quebec, Canada (Hymenoptera: Terebrantes)
TLDR
During a study on the litter arthropods of the natural forests of southern Quebec, Mymarommatidae specimens were found near Lachute, northwest of Montreal, and proposed not to include them in a superfamily until the phyletic relationships of the Terebrantes are better defined.
Cretaceous chalcidoid fossils from Canadian amber

Molecular analyses of the Apocrita (Insecta: Hymenoptera) suggest that the Chalcidoidea are sister to the diaprioid complex
TLDR
This study reports that ingroup topology was sensitive to the choice of outgroup, the method of phylogenetic analysis, and inclusion of 18S data, and suggests the Chalcidoidea + (Diapriidae + Monomachidae + Maamingidae) relationship is more likely.
EVIDENCE FOR MONOPHYLY AND RELATIONSHIPS OF CHALCIDOIDEA, MYMARIDAE, AND MYMAROMMATIDAE (HYMENOPTERA: TEREBRANTES)
TLDR
It is suggested that mymarommatids be accorded family status, but not be assigned to superfamily until phyletic relationships are more accurately determined in Terebrantes.
A NEW SPECIES OF THE GENUS PALAEOMYMAR MEUNIER, 1901 (HYMENOPTERA: MYMAROMMATIDAE) FROM THE RUSSIAN FAR EAST, WITH NOTES ON OTHER PALAEARCTIC SPECIES
Three Palaearctic species of Palaeomymar Meunier, 1901 are keyed and reviewed, including P. ypt sp. n., which is described and illustrated from Primorskii krai, with additional records from China and
Phylogeny of the Hymenoptera: A cladistic reanalysis of Rasnitsyn’s (1988) data
TLDR
A character matrix for fossil and recent hymenopterans is derived and it is shown that there is little support for Rasnitsyn’s biphyletic hypothesis, postulating a sister‐group relationship between tenthredinoids and macroxyelines, and the data favour the conventional view that Hymenoptera excluding the Xyelidae are monophyletic.
