Abstract The paper deals with descriptions of four new species of Archostemata from the Paleocene and Earliest Eocene amber, Cupes manifestus n. sp., C. orbiculatus n. sp., C. ponomarenkoi n. sp. and Micromalthus eocenicus n. sp., the latter representing the oldest member of genus Micromalthus Leconte 1878 (Micromalthidae). The position, composition and origin of the genera Cupes and Micromalthus are considered. Cupes seemed to appear during Cretaceous or very close to this period, while… Expand

NEW GENUS AND SPECIES OF THE TRIBE OPATRINI (COLEOPTERA, TENEBRIONIDAE, TENEBRIONINAE) FROM THE LOWERMOST EOCENE AMBER OF PARIS BASIN
TLDR
The genus is most similar to the genera Neopachypterus and Pseudolamus from the tribe Opatrini by the shape of trochanters, but differs in the large eyes, presence of a row of spines along protibiae, and narrow subcylindrical apical maxillary palpomere. Expand
A new species of Micromalthidae (Coleoptera) from the Rovno amber: 1. Adult morphology
TLDR
The new species is readily distinguished from M. eocenicus Kirejtshuk et al., 2010 from the Early Eocene amber of Oise in France by the shorter body, unequal length of antennomeres 3 and 4, ovate terminal antennae, less transverse head, transverse scutellum, and by the considerably shortened adsutural elytral margin.

Quelques précisions au sujet de Micromalthus (Insecta coleoptera)
The prothorax of Micromalthus is very different of those of the other Coleoptera. Its pterothorax is quite similar to that of the Lymexylonidae near which the family Micromalthidae must be classified.
