The genera of the lance lacewing family Osmylidae (Neuroptera) and extinct allied families (Archeosmylidae, Saucrosmylidae) are reviewed. A key to living Osmylidae genera of the world is presented. Each genus is diagnosed and figured with a checklist of species included for each. New, revised or support for previous taxonomic changes include the following: Nuddsia Menon Makarkin, 2008 (= Burmaleon Myskowiak et al., 2016 syn. nov.); Kempynus Navás, 1912 (= Clydosmylus New 1983a syn. nov… 
Unravelling the most diverse lance lacewing genus from the New World, Isostenosmylus Krüger (Neuroptera: Osmylidae)
Isostenosmylus is recovered as a monophyletic genus and species are divided in two main clades (named here as ‘bifurcatus’ and ‘pulverulentus’ clades); the greatest diversity of this genus is located in the Andean mountain range, where new studies should be focused on.
New Cretaceous antlion-like lacewings promote a phylogenetic reappraisal of the extinct myrmeleontoid family Babinskaiidae
The result from the phylogenetic inference combining the data from fossil and extant myrmeleontoids recovered a monophyletic clade composed of Babinskaiidae and another extinct family Cratosmylidae, and assigned this clade to be sister group to a clade including Nemopteridae, Palaeoleont Families, and Myr meleontidae.
A new genus of lance lacewings from the Middle Jurassic of Inner Mongolia, China
The new genus Vetosmylus is reported, the first and earliest record hitherto of Osmylinae from the Mesozoic, enhances the understanding of the early stages of their evolution.
Papers published in Zootaxa concerning Neuropterida.
In the first twenty years of the publication of Zootaxa, more than two hundred papers have appeared in this journal that address the Neuropterida, which collectively includes the
New Cretaceous Lacewings in a Transitional Lineage of Myrmeleontoidea and Their Phylogenetic Implications
Two new species are described, which respectively belong to Cratosmylidae and Babinskaiidae, namely, Araripenymphes burmanus sp.
Changes in the Morphological Diversity of Larvae of Lance Lacewings, Mantis Lacewings and Their Closer Relatives over 100 Million Years
The results point to a complex pattern of diversity changes in Neuroptera from 100 million years ago until today, with Mantispidae appears to have lost certain forms of larvae, but has seen a drastic increase of larval diversity after the Cretaceous; this is in contrast to a significant decrease in diversity in adult forms.
