Osmylidae is a small family of Neuroptera with a worldwide distribution. Only four subfamilies and five genera of Osmylidae have been reported to date for the Neotropical region, with a total of 16 species, whilst 200 species are known in the world. In this study three new species are described-Isostenosmylus bifurcatus n. sp., I. irroratus n. sp. and I. julianae n. sp. Moreover, species of Gumilla Navás, 1912 and Paryphosmylus Krüger, 1913 are redescribed; additionally one larva of… 
Unravelling the most diverse lance lacewing genus from the New World, Isostenosmylus Krüger (Neuroptera: Osmylidae)
TLDR
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.
Mesozoic diversity of relict subfamily Kempyninae (Neuroptera: Osmylidae)
TLDR
The finding demonstrates that extant kempynins, a typical Gondwanan group, are overshadowed by their Mesozoic relatives in taxonomic diversity and variety of wing venation.
Neotropical Osmylidae larvae (Insecta, Neuroptera): description of habitats and morphology
TLDR
The first key to identification of Neotropical Osmylidae larvae is provided, based on third-instar larvae of both species.
Descriptions of three larvae of Osmylus species from Japan (Neuroptera: Osmylidae), with a proposed naming system for the larval sclerites.
The naming system of sclerites on osmylid larvae is proposed by observation of three Japanese osmylid species, Osmylus (Osmylus) hyalinatus McLachlan, 1875, O. (O.) pryeri McLachlan, 1875, and O.
A remarkable new genus of Protosmylinae (Neuroptera: Osmylidae) from late Eocene Florissant, Colorado.
TLDR
This genus is remarkable by CuP in the forewing bearing few pectinate branches, and is the only genus of extant and Cenozoic fossil Osmylidae in which this plesiomorphic condition is retained.
Taxonomic notes on Babinskaiidae from the Cretaceous Burmese amber, with the description of a new species (Insecta, Neuroptera)
TLDR
A new species of Babinskaiidae is described from Cretaceous Burmese amber, namely Parababinskaia makarkini sp.
The phylogeny of lance lacewings (Neuroptera: Osmylidae)
TLDR
Divergence time analysis revealed that the Osmylidae originated during the Late Permian before the break‐up of the supercontinent Pangaea and that present generic distributions are not due to Gondwanan biogeographic events.
Revision of the genus Gryposmylus Krüger, 1913 (Neuroptera, Osmylidae) with a remarkable example of convergence in wing disruptive patterning
TLDR
An extraordinary example of morphological convergence is presented, with disruptive camouflaging wing markings in Gryposmylus pennyi sp.
A New Species of Moth Lacewing from the Mesoamerican Genus Adamsiana Penny 1996 (Neuroptera: Ithonidae)
The poorly studied Mesoamerican genus Adamsiana Penny, 1996 (Neuroptera: Ithonidae) was considered monotypic for more than 20 years, containing only Adamsiana curoei Penny. However, a second species

First record of Osmylidae (Neuroptera) from Colombia and description of two new species of Isostenosmylus Krüger, 1913.
The family Osmylidae is recorded for the first time in Colombia, extending its known distribution range to the north of South America in the northern Andes. Two new species of the genus
Global diversity of dobsonflies, fishflies, and alderflies (Megaloptera; Insecta) and spongillaflies, nevrorthids, and osmylids (Neuroptera; Insecta) in freshwater
TLDR
This work recognizes 328 extant, described species of Megaloptera and 73 species of aquatic Neuroptera and estimates that 45 species of Osmylidae are water-dependent, although the ecology of this group is poorly understood.
Phylogenetic relevance of the genital sclerites of Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola)
TLDR
Results from holomorphological and recent molecular cladistic analyses of Neuropterida agree in supporting the sister‐group relationships between: (1) the Raphidioptera and the clade Megaloptera + Neuroptera, and (2) the suborder Nevrorthiformia and all other Neuroptera.
On wings of lace: phylogeny and Bayesian divergence time estimates of Neuropterida (Insecta) based on morphological and molecular data
TLDR
Megaloptera were found to be paraphyletic with respect to the rest of Neuroptera, calling into question the validity of the ordinal status for Megaloptera as presently defined, and the phylogenetic status and taxonomic composition of Polystoechotidae and Ithonidae are in need of re‐evaluation.
