Six new species of the extinct family Dinopanorpidae (Mecoptera) are described in the new genus Dinokanaga gen. nov. from five Early (and early Middle?) Eocene Okanagan Highlands localities in British Columbia and Washington State. These are Dinokanaga hillsi sp. nov., D. wilsoni sp. nov., D. dowsonae sp. nov., D. andersoni sp. nov., D. sternbergi sp. nov., and D. webbi sp. nov. The family Dinopanorpidae is previously known only from a hind wing of Dinopanorpa megarche Cockerell, and an… Expand
New Cimbrophlebiidae (Insecta: Mecoptera) from the Early Eocene at McAbee, British Columbia, Canada and Republic, Washington, USA
TLDR
Four new scorpionfly species of the family Cimbrophlebiidae (Mecoptera) are described from two localities of the far-western North American Early Eocene Okanagan Highlands, the first record of the extinct family in the Western Hemisphere. Expand
Revision of the unique Early Cretaceous Mecoptera from Koonwarra (Australia) with description of a new genus and family
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of Australochoristidae are not quite clear, but observed taxonomical characters do not support it as an ancestral group to any living group of Mecoptera including the Australian endemic Choristaceae. Expand
Bulldog Ants of the Eocene Okanagan Highlands and History of the Subfamily (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Myrmeciinae)
TLDR
The fossil record indicates a northern hemisphere origin of the Myrmeciinae, and the presence of Ypresiomyrma in Denmark and British Columbia further reflects the well-documented Paleogene cross-North Atlantic distributions of biota. Expand
Tertiary giant lacewings (Neuroptera: Polystoechotidae): Revision and description of new taxa from western north America and Denmark
TLDR
Polystoechotidae in the Eocene, as today, appear to have ranged in forested regions of microthermal to lower mesothermal climate, and taphonomic factors such as the presence of mat‐forming organisms may have enhanced their fossil representation to greater than their community representation. Expand
The Eocene Apex of Panorpoid Scorpionfly Family Diversity
TLDR
It is proposed that the apex of Panorpoid family diversity ended by pressures from post-Eocene icehouse world climatic stress and the rise to ecological dominance of ants, some of which would have provided strong competition in scavenging for dead arthropods. Expand
Early Eocene (Ypresian) birds from the Okanagan Highlands, British Columbia (Canada) and Washington State (USA)
We survey the known avian fossils from Ypresian (early Eocene) fossil sites of the North American Okanagan Highlands, mainly in British Columbia (Canada). All specimens represent taxa that wereExpand
A new family of scorpionflies (Insecta; Mecoptera) from the Lower Cretaceous of England
TLDR
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

Neue Mecopteren aus dem oberen Jura von Karatau (Kasachstan) (Insecta, Mecoptera: ‘Orthophlebiidae’)
TLDR
The males of the three new species of Jurassic ‘Orthophlebiidae’ show the tergites and sternites of abdominal segments 6 to 8 to be unfused or incompletely fused, which implies that contrary to earlier assumptions, completely fused sclerites in segment 8 leaving no trace of their delimitations are not a synapomorphy of the Panorpomorpha.
