Die bisher bekannte Trockenholztermiten-Fauna (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae) aus dem Dominikanischen Bernstein des Fruhen Miozan (Burdigalian) wird revidiert. Dem fruher beschriebenem Cryptotermes yamini Krishna & Bacchus werden vier Arten hinzugefugt: Incisitermes peritus sp. n., Glyptotermes paleoliberatus sp. n., G. grimaldii sp. n. und Cryptotermes glaesarius sp. n. Der Fund von Incisitermes ist der erste fur die Gattung im Dominikanischen Bernstein; die einzige andere Spezies, I. krishnai… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Diverse Rhinotermitidae and Termitidae (Isoptera) in Dominican Amber
TLDR
The most diverse and best-preserved paleofauna of the higher termites heretofore known, all found in Miocene amber of the Dominican Republic, is described, with a number that exceeds that of the present-day fauna of Hispaniola. Expand
The termites of Early Eocene Cambay amber, with the earliest record of the Termitidae (Isoptera)
TLDR
Together these species represent the earliest Tertiary records of the Neoisoptera and the oldest definitive record of Termitidae, a family that comprises >75% of the living species of Isoptera. Expand
Diverse, primitive termites (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae, incertae sedis) from the early Miocene of New Zealand
TLDR
Six genera and species, inclusive of Stolotermes kupe Kaulfuss et al., are now known from Miocene New Zealand; most are attributable to the Kalotermitidae (drywood termites) and one, left as family incertae sedis, has kalotermitid‐like traits. Expand
Transoceanic voyages of drywood termites (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae) inferred from extant and extinct species
TLDR
The phylogenetic estimates provide a platform for a critical taxonomic revision of the family and for future comparative analyses of Kalotermitidae, and revealed that the capacity to forage is often found in early-diverging kalotermitid lineages, implying that the ancestors of Kalotersmitidae were able to foraging among multiple wood pieces.

Two New Termites in Baltic Amber (Isoptera)
TLDR
A new genus and species of primitive termite (Isoptera) is described and figured from the remains of an imago preserved in middle Eocene (Lutetian) Baltic amber and Heterotermes eocenicus Engel, new species, is described. Expand
Early Cretaceous termites in amber from northern Spain (Isoptera).
Abstract Two virtually complete termites in Lower Cretaceous amber from the Penacerrada I outcrop, Spain, are described and figured, representing the most well-preserved Isoptera yet discovered fromExpand
Termites (Isoptera): Their Phylogeny, Classification, and Rise to Ecological Dominance
TLDR
The first phylogeny of termite lineages using exemplar Cretaceous, Tertiary, and Recent taxa was presented, revealing extensive grades of stem-group taxa and the divergence of some modern families in theCretaceous. Expand
An orchid bee of the genus Eulaema in Early Miocene Mexican amber (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
The first fossil orchid bee from Early Miocene Mexican amber is described and figured.  Eulaema ( Apeulaema ) zigrasi Engel, new species, represents the first non-meliponine bee fossil documentedExpand
A global molecular phylogeny and timescale of evolution for Cryptocercus woodroaches.
TLDR
This study generated mitochondrial, nuclear, and Blattbacterium endosymbiont sequence data for 8 new Chinese species, and combined these with previously available data to undertake the most extensive analysis of phylogenetic relationships within the genus to date, suggesting Cryptocercus was originally distributed across both continents. Expand
Kumar Krishna, in appreciation
TLDR
Krishna Krishna’s influence extends beyond the scope of isopterological studies and so several of the papers included herein are from contributors on other lineages of insects who have been similarly inspired by his indomitable spirit. Expand
