The Mantophasmatodea is the most recently discovered insect order. The fossil records of all other ‘polyneopteran’ orders extend far in the past, but the current absence of pre-Cenozoic fossils of the Mantophasmatodea contradicts a long evolutionary history, which has to be assumed from the morphological distinctness of the group. In this paper, we report the first Mesozoic evidence of a mantophasmatodean from the Middle Jurassic of Daohugou, Inner Mongolia, China. Furthermore, the new fossil… Expand
the oldest aphid of the family oviparosiphidae (hemiptera: aphidoidea) from the Middle Jurassic of china
TLDR
A new aphid genus and species is described belonging to the extinct family Oviparosiphidae from the Middle Jurassic Daohugou beds, Ningcheng County, Inner Mongolia, Northeast China and is considered to be the earliest certain representative of this family and the body remains of one of the oldest aphids. Expand
The oldest known clerid fossils from the Middle Jurassic of China, with a review of Cleridae systematics (Coleoptera)
TLDR
Ninety‐six morphological characters of the larvae and adults of 17 extant clerid representatives and seven cleroid families as outgroups were analysed under maximum parsimony and the resulting trees appear congruent with the latest molecular phylogenies of Cleridae. Expand
Megalyridia capensis (Hymenoptera: Megalyridae: Megalyridiini) a relict species endemic to South Africa
TLDR
High-quality images of both sexes and a key to genera of Megalyridae occurring in the Afrotropical region are provided and the biogeography of this relict species is discussed. Expand
Revision of Anomopterella Rasnitsyn, 1975 (Insecta, Hymenoptera, Anomopterellidae) with two new Middle Jurassic species from northeastern China
Abstract New Anomopterella Rasnitsyn, 1975, wasps from the Jiulongshan Formation (Bathonian/Callovian) at Daohugou (Inner Mongolia of China), with well-preserved wings, body, antennae and tarsi,Expand
New fossil records of bizarre Ferganolyda (Hymenoptera: Xyelydidae) from the Middle Jurassic of China
TLDR
The new materials show that males have head capsules with ratios of width to length ranging from 3.1 to 3.6, whereas females have ratios from 1.9 to 2.1, which enhances the understanding of the evolution and relationships of the extinct Xyelydidae (Hymenoptera). Expand
Sympatry in Mantophasmatodea, with the description of a new species and phylogenetic considerations
TLDR
The morphological differences between these two species are surveyed, the absence of any morphological evidence of hybridisation is documented, and the current hypothesis of a linear north-to-south diversification of Austrophasmatidae is challenged. Expand
Revision of the genus Sunotettigarcta Hong, 1983 (Hemiptera, Tettigarctidae), with a new species from Daohugou, Inner Mongolia, China
TLDR
A new species of fossil Tettigarctidae SunotettIGarcta hirsuta Li, Wang & Ren sp. Expand
Background for the Plant Fossils
Most of the fossil materials documented in this book are from the Jurassic and Cretaceous of northeastern China. In this chapter, the author describes the geological and palaeobiological backgroundsExpand
Yuhania: a unique angiosperm from the Middle Jurassic of Inner Mongolia, China
TLDR
The occurrence of Yuhania in the Middle Jurassic re-confirms the Jurassic history for angiosperms that has been suggested by other independent research and adds to the on-going study on the early evolution of angios perms. Expand
Biodiversity, ecology, and behavior of the recently discovered insect order Mantophasmatodea
TLDR
This work collected and analyzed numerous populations that belong to all known mantophasmatodean lineages, including East African populations, to provide a comprehensive biogeographical overview and a comparative analysis of behavior, which was mainly analyzed under laboratory conditions. Expand

TLDR
If the newly discovered genus Mantophasma are eventually found to lay foam-covered eggs, as do Dictyoptera and Phasmids, then the five suborders Cnemidolestodea, Titanoptera, Caloneurodea, DictYopterA and Phasmatodea should be united as the order Oothecaria. Expand
