New taxa of uncertain position within the infraclass Polyneoptera (Gryllomantidae fam. nov.: Gryllomantis gen. nov., Lower Cretaceous; Mantoblattidae fam. nov.: Mantoblatta mira gen. et sp. nov., Upper Cretaceous) and within the order Dictyoptera (Pseudojantaropterix gen. nov., Lower Cretaceous) are described. The superfamily Umenocoleoidea of uncertain position within the latter order is discussed on the basis of new information on Jantarimantidae and some other Cretaceous Dictyoptera. 
New and little known orthopteroid insects (polyneoptera) from fossil resins: Communication 2
New taxa of the suborder Blattina (order Dictyoptera) are described and the taxonomic position of the enigmatic genus Raphidiomimula Grimaldi et Ross from the Upper Cretaceous is discussed.
Mantophasmatodea now in the Jurassic
This paper reports the first Mesozoic evidence of a mantophasmatodean from the Middle Jurassic of Daohugou, Inner Mongolia, China, and shares apomorphic characters with Cenozoic and recent MantophasMatodea, suggesting a longer evolutionary history of this order.
Paekthoblatta, a New Predatory Cockroach Genus (Insecta: Blattaria: Raphidiomimidae) from the Lower Cretaceous of Paektho-Dong, Sinuiju, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
Paekthoblattacoreanica gen. et sp. n. assigned to the family Raphidiomimidae was collected from grey mudstones of the Third Member of the Sinuiju Formation from Paektho-dong, Sinuiju City, North
A new Jurassic carnivorous cockroach (Insecta, Blattaria, Raphidiomimidae) from the Inner Mongolia in China
Fortiblatta cuspicolor gen. et sp. nov., a carnivorous cockroach of the family Raphidiomimidae Vishniakova, 1973, is described from the Middle Jurassic Jiulongshan Formation of Daohugou, Eastern
Albian cockroaches (Insecta, Blattida) from French amber of Archingeay
Phase-contrast X-ray synchrotron imaging, a technique recently developed for analysing amber inclusions, is used here for the first time to reconstruct very detailed views of two cockroach specimens fossilised in a piece of opaque amber.
A catalogue of Burmite inclusions
Until the end of 2016, 14 phyla, 21 classes, 65 orders, 279 families, 515 genera and 643 species of organisms are recorded, which are summized and complied in this catalogue.


Mantophasmatodea: A New Insect Order with Extant Members in the Afrotropics
A new insect order, Mantophasmatodea, is described on the basis of museum specimens of a new genus with two species: Mantophasma zephyra gen. et sp. nov. (one female from Namibia) and M. subsolana
A Review of the Order Mantophasmatodea (Insecta)
The newly discovered insect order Mantophasmatodea, known from two Recent species in tropical Africa and some fossils in Baltic amber, is reviewed, with all the material currently known being listed.
The new beetle family, Umenocoleidae, described in this paper is based on a single fossil specimen, collected from the greenish-gray shale of the Lower Cretaceous of Yumen, Kansu. This is a quite
A New Rock Crawler in Baltic Amber, with Comments on the Order(Mantophasmatodea: Mantophasmatidae)
A new fossil species of the recently described insect order Mantophasmatodea (Polyneoptera: Anartioptera), the “African rock crawlers”, is described and figured from Eocene (Lutetian) Baltic amber, resembling in these respects the living African genera Mantophasma and Praedatophasma.
The most interesting finds of orthopteroid insects at the end of the 20th century and a new recent genus and species
A series of paleontological finds, including new higher taxa, oldest representatives of some other higher taxA, and several interesting problematic and enigmatic fossils clarify difficult problems of classification and evolution of Polyneoptera.
A Revision of Cretaceous Mantises and Their Relationships, Including New Taxa (Insecta: Dictyoptera: Mantodea)
Cladistic analysis of 26 morphological characters and 20 taxa indicates that Cretaceous mantises are phylogenetically basal to all living species and do not belong to the most basal living families Chaeteessidae, Mantoididae, and Metallyticidae.
Description of an enigmatic insect from Baltic amber
Le specimen examine presente des caracteres morphologiques si originaux que son attribution a un ordre precis est tres delicate, bien qu'il ait une certaine ressemblance avec les Phasmatodea.

Primary reproductives of M. darwiniensis were observed during oviposition and the morphology of the reproductive product was examined, indicating that a secondary reduction is the more plausible explanation for the structure of the ootheca.
