Dunbaria fasciipennis is one of the few palaeodictyopterid species represented by a sufficient series of specimens to have yielded some data on intraspecific variation. A pre viously unknown specimen comprising most of the four wings, cerci, and portions of the gen ital appendages and 11th tergite of a male of the species is described and figured here. Kukalov?-Peck's conjecture of sexually dimorphic forewing geometry in the species is fur ther bolstered by the morphology of this specimen… 

First report of Namurian insects (Palaeodictyoptera; Megasecoptera; “basal Neoptera”) from the Küchenberg near Fröndenberg/Ruhr (Germany)

Wing fragments of Homaloneura berenice Brauckmann and Gröning, 1998 belong to the most ancient members of the Megasecoptera, which have a striking specific color pattern and are appraised to be very plesiomorphic.

The entomofauna of the Lower Permian fossil insect beds of Kansas and Oklahoma, USA

When reviewing the holotype/neotype specimens used to describe the Wellington Formation species, it is found that 62% consist of fore wings, while 9% are complete specimens, indicating the importance of continued collecting and review of Wellington Formation insect fossils.

A new palaeodictyopterid (Insecta: Palaeodictyoptera: Spilapteridae) from the Upper Carboniferous of China supports a close relationship between insect faunas of Quilianshian (northern China) and Laurussia

A new palaeodictyopterid from the Upper Carboniferous of China supports a close relationship between insect faunas of Quilianshian (northern China) and Laurussia and restores the attribution of Bojoptera to Spilapteridae based on re-examination of the holotype and makes several corrections to the original description.
