This study revises the Mantispidae of Colombia. 151 adult specimens of 12 entomological museums of Colombia were examined and identified. On the basis of the specimens studied and a comprehensive literature search, it is determined that 20 nominal species (including two doubtful records) plus four proposed as new to science, in ten genera (Anchieta, Plega, Trichoscelia, Gerstaeckerella, Buyda, Climaciella, Dicromantispa, Entanoneura, Leptomantispa, and Zeugomantispa) and, three subfamilies…

Type specimens of Neuropterida in the Hope Entomological Collection, Oxford University Museum of Natural History
The Hope Entomological Collection in the Oxford University Museum of Natural History holds a large and diverse array of historically valuable type specimens for species in the superorder Neuropterida (Megaloptera, Neuroptera, and Raphidioptera), and to help stabilize the nomenclature, new lectotype designations are made.
A review of the biology and biogeography of Mantispidae (Neuroptera)
Considering the biology, systematics, distribution of higher taxonomic levels and the fossil record, the historical biogeography of the group is critically discussed with Gondwana as the epicenter of Mantispidae radiation.
New host record for the enigmatic Neotropical mantidfly genus Anchieta Navás, 1909 (Neuroptera, Mantispidae), a mimic of wasps and stingless bees
The third case of an association between the mantidfly genus Anchieta Navas, 1909 with the order Hymenoptera is presented and the biology and mimicry pattern with stingless bees of the reared AnchietA species is discussed.
A revision of and keys to the genera of the Mantispinae of the Oriental and Palearctic regions (Neuroptera: Mantispidae).
The Mantispinae (Neuroptera: Mantispidae) genera of the Oriental and Palearctic regions are revised. A morphological key to the genera is generated. Austroclimaciella, Campancella, Mantispa,
A remarkable new thorny lacewing from mid-Cretaceous amber from northern Myanmar (Neuroptera: Rhachiberothidae)
Thorny lacewings (Rhachiberothidae) are a small group of Neuroptera, and currently distributed only within sub-Saharan Africa. They are relatively abundant in the fossil record of various Cretaceous

Protonolima gen. nov. (Neuroptera: Mantispidae) is described from the early Eocene Green River Formation and likely belongs to Calomantispinae, on the basis of the very distal origin of posterior radius and the basal crossvein between media and cubitus.
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


A revision of the mantispid genus Nampista (Neuropterida, Mantispidae)
A considerable amount of sexual dimorphism in Nampistas is recorded: Both sexes have disc-shaped antennal segments, but they are markedly wider in male Nampista (relative to the rest of the body) than in females.
A revision of the Australian Mantispidae (Insecta : Neuroptera) with a contribution to the classification of the family. I. General and Drepanicinae
The Australian Mantispidae is reviewed and a new classification of the family involving four subfamilies is proposed, as follows: Symphrasinae (Anchieta, Trichoscelia, Plega), Drepanicinae(Drepanicus), Drepanicus, Ditaxis, Theristria, Gerstaeckerella, and Mantispinee (remaining Recent genera).
A new genus of Mantispidae (Insecta: Neuroptera) from the Eocene of Germany, with a review of the fossil record and palaeobiogeography of the family
The origin and palaeobiogeography of the mantispids are briefly discussed: the concept of ousted relicts ‐ which assumes that former widely distributed taxa were replaced with groups originating in the tropics ‐ is assumed to best explain the present distribution of the family.

Spider (Araneae) Taxa Associated with Mantispa viridis (Neuroptera: Mantispidae)
The present paper reports the results of field studies conducted from 1982 through 198 6 to document the spider taxa exploited by M. viridis in northwestern South Carolina, to deter mine the frequency with which multiple larvae attack single egg sacs, and to determine the number of adults which successfully develop in multiply-infested sacs.
