Abstract Hesperentomon yangi sp. n. is described from eastern China. Its DNA barcodes are sequenced and compared to the similar species of the genus. Hesperentomon yangi sp. n. is characterized by 12 posterior setae on tergites II–VI, 8 posterior setae on sternites IV–VI (seta Pc absent), absence of seta sd4 on head, absence of seta P2a on tergite VII, 6 and 8 anterior setae on mesosternum and metasternum respectively, and few teeth on comb. It differs from Hesperentomon xiningense Bu & Yin…

Where Taxonomy Based on Subtle Morphological Differences Is Perfectly Mirrored by Huge Genetic Distances: DNA Barcoding in Protura (Hexapoda)

The study clearly demonstrates that the tricky morphological taxonomy in Protura has a solid biological background and that accurate species delimitation is possible using both markers, COI and 28S rDNA.

An unusual 100-million-year old holometabolan larva with a piercing mouth cone

A new unusual larva preserved in Burmese amber that appears beak-like, forming a distinct piercing mouth cone is reported, which is extremely rare among larval forms, restricted to those of some beetles and lacewings.

DNA Extraction from Dry Museum Beetles without Conferring External Morphological Damage

This paper describes a method for the extraction of PCR-amplifiable mitochondrial and nuclear DNA from dry insects without causing external morphological damage and demonstrates the efficacy of this method on beetles collected up to 50 years ago.
