Nedubroviidae fam. nov. consists of Nedubrovia gen. nov., with Nedubrovia shcherbakovi sp. nov. as the type species, N. deformis sp. nov., and N. mostovskii comb. nov., originally described in Mesopanorpodes. The second genus of Nedubroviidae is Paranedubrovia gen. nov., with Paranedubrovia novokshonovi sp. nov. as the type species, and including P. minutissima sp. nov. Of these five species, all originate from the Late Permian of European Russia except for the Early Triassic N. mostovskii. The… Expand

A new family of scorpionflies (Insecta; Mecoptera) from the Lower Cretaceous of England

Seven specimens of fossil scorpionflies (Mecoptera) not assignable to any known family were discovered in the Wealden Supergroup (Lower Cretaceous) of southern England and two new species E. crabbi sp. Expand
The first Permian scorpionfly from Germany (Insecta, Panorpida: Protomeropidae)

Three new species of aneuretopsychids (Insecta: Mecoptera) from the Jehol Biota, China
TLDR
From the proboscis structure and inferred ecological relationships, it is believed that these three new species, with proboscid lengths ranging from 3.5 to 14.5 mm, were pollinators of gymnosperm hosts that bore a broad size-range of deep funnel or other tubular structures laden with nectar-like fluid rewards. Expand
New representative of the family Panorpodidae (Insecta, Mecoptera) from Eocene Baltic Amber with a key to fossil species of genus Panorpodes
TLDR
A key to fossil species of the genus Panorpodes based on characters of the forewing is provided and a new pattern of markings is described – five dark spots and a terminal band. Expand
A well-preserved aneuretopsychid from the Jehol Biota of China (Insecta, Mecoptera, Aneuretopsychidae)
TLDR
This finding documents the first formal record of fossil Aneuretopsychidae in China and reveals previously unknown and detailed morphological structure of the mouthparts, antennae, head, thorax, legs and abdomen of this distinctive insect lineage. Expand
New data from the Middle Jurassic of China shed light on the phylogeny and origin of the proboscis in the Mesopsychidae (Insecta: Mecoptera)
TLDR
Phylogenetic and geometric morphometric results confirm the establishment of two new species, each to Lichnomesopsyche and Vitimopsyche, and evaluate the recurring origin of the siphonate proboscis in the Mecoptera and propose an evolutionary developmental model for its multiple origins. Expand
Nature's failed experiment: Long-proboscid Neuroptera (Sisyridae: Paradoxosisyrinae) from Upper Cretaceous amber of northern Myanmar
TLDR
There is considerable diversity in the morphology of mouthparts, wing venation and wing patterns of Paradoxosisyrinae, and possible reasons for evolutionary failure of long-proboscid Neuroptera are discussed. Expand
Revision of the long-proboscid scorpionflies, Lichnomesopsyche Ren, Labandeira, and Shih, 2010
Abstract. The Mesozoic mecopteran family Mesopsychidae has attracted extensive attention by their long proboscis that is presumably associated with pollination of early gymnosperms. Three previouslyExpand
The earliest Mesopsychidae and revision of the family Mesopanorpodidae (Mecoptera)
TLDR
The origin, evolutionary history, and stratigraphic occurrence of Mesopsychidae are discussed and two species described under Mesopanorpodes from the Upper Permian of Australia are included into Permopsyche. Expand

A Probable Pollination Mode Before Angiosperms: Eurasian, Long-Proboscid Scorpionflies
TLDR
The presence of scorpionfly taxa suggests that siphonate proboscides fed on gymnosperm pollination drops and likely engaged in pollination mutualisms with gymnosperms during the mid-Mesozoic, long before the similar and independent coevolution of nectar-feeding flies, moths, and beetles on angiosperms.

The Pollination of Mid Mesozoic Seed Plants and the Early History of Long-proboscid Insects1,2,3
TLDR
Evidence for pollination includes the entomophilous structure and size of pollen found on insect and plant contact surfaces and in insect guts, nutritional levels of modern pollination drop fluids similar to angiosperm nectar for supporting metabolically high activity levels of aerially active insects, and plant-host outcrossing.
