The oldest representative of the bombyliid bee fly in the earliest Eocene French amber

Eoconophorina sp. the oldest representative of the bee fly subfamily Bombyliinae, is described from the earliest Eocene Oise amber (France). It is characterized by the presence of mid tibial spurs,

Phylogenomics reveals accelerated late Cretaceous diversification of bee flies (Diptera: Bombyliidae)

The dating analyses indicate a Jurassic origin of the Bombyliidae, with the sand chamber evolving early in bee fly evolution, in the late Jurassic or mid‐Cretaceous, and it is hypothesized that the angiosperm radiation and the hothouse climate established during the late Cretaceous accelerated the diversification of bee flies.

A remarkable diversity of new nonempidoid orthorrhaphan flies from the mid-Cretaceous of Myanmar is presented, including 28 species in 22 genera (13 new), and at least 12 families, and some morphological features in fossil and Recent Brachycera are presented.

Oldest records of Bombyliidae: Phthiriinae and Mythicomyiidae: Glabellulinae from the Lowermost Eocene amber of France (Diptera: Bombylioidea)

This discovery suggests a relatively humid forest close to a river with a drier surrounding area for the palaeoenvironment of the Oise amber, suggesting at least a Late Cretaceous age for this group, coincident with the diversification of the flowering plants.

New fossil bee flies (Diptera : Bombylioidea) in the Lowermost Eocene amber of the Paris Basin

This discovery suggests that the present Gondwanan distribution of the Systropodini is an artefact related to the climatic changes in the Tertiary, and represents the oldest fossil record of Bombyliidae.

Phylogenetic analyses with four new Cretaceous bristletails reveal inter‐relationships of Archaeognatha and Gondwana origin of Meinertellidae

The results confirm the phylogenetic position of the new genera, clarify the monophyly of Meinertellidae and indicate that the ‘paleo‐types’ excluding Ditrigoniophthalmus are nested within the Machilidae group, but suggest that the three subfamilies withinMachilidae may be artificial.
