Abstract We describe three new genera and four new species (three named) of siricomorph sawflies (Hymenoptera: Symphyta) from the Ypresian (early Eocene) Okanagan Highlands: Pamphiliidae, Ulteramus republicensis new genus, new species from Republic, Washington, United States of America; Siricidae, Ypresiosirex orthosemos new genus, new species from McAbee, British Columbia, Canada; and Cephidae, Cuspilongus cachecreekensis new genus, new species from McAbee and another cephid treated as… 

A new genus and species of split-footed lacewings (Neuroptera) from the early Eocene of western Canada and revision of the subfamily affinities of Mesozoic Nymphidae

Abstract A new genus and new species of Nymphidae (Neuroptera) is described from the Ypresian Okanagan Highlands locality of Falkland, British Columbia, Canada: Epinesydrion falklandensisnew genus,

Two New Fossil Sawflies of Pamphiliidae (Hymenoptera: Symphyta) from the Mesozoic of Northeastern China †

The tarsal claw characteristics found in the new species may suggest Scabolyda has a closer relationship with Cephalciinae, rather than with Pamphiliinee, while the documentation of new structures of antennae, genitalia, and legs helps to link extant and fossil taxa of Pamphiliaidae.

Modernisation of the Hymenoptera: ants, bees, wasps, and sawflies of the early Eocene Okanagan Highlands of western North America

An overview of the Okanagan Highlands Hymenoptera to family level and in some cases below that, with a minimum of 25 named families and at least 30 when those tentatively assigned or distinct at family level, but not named are included.

New Data on the Family Siricidae (Hymenoptera, Symphyta) in Baltic Amber

The faunistic links between the communities from the Eocene Baltic amber and modern Himalayan biota have been revealed and the paleontological history of the family Siricidae has been overviewed.

Mitogenome organization and evolutionary history of the subfamily Cephinae (Hymenoptera: Cephidae)

Diversification of the Cephinae subfamily appears to correspond to a great extent to host plant availability and colonization in the Late Cretaceous, Early Eocene and Oligocene, suggesting speciation via host shift.

The second North American fossil horntail wood-wasp (Hymenoptera: Siricidae), from the early Eocene Green River Formation.

The Eocene forest that Eoteredon inhabited had a mesothermal to megathermal climate and is proposed as sister to the genus Teredon, whose sole species is one of the rarest of extant Siricidae.

New species of Myrmicium Westwood (Psedosiricidae = Myrmiciidae: Hymenoptera, Insecta) from the Early Cretaceous (Aptian) of the Araripe Basin, Brazil.

This paper describes it as a new species Myrmicium araripterum sp.

Volcaniclastic lithostratigraphy and paleoenvironment of the lower Eocene McAbee fossil beds, Kamloops Group, British Columbia, Canada

The lower Eocene McAbee fossil beds (∼53 Ma), in south-central British Columbia, Canada, represent a lacustrine sequence deposited during a time of pervasive regional volcanism. Previous studies on



Early Eocene big headed flies (Diptera: Pipunculidae) from the Okanagan Highlands, western North America

Abstract Three new species of Pipunculidae (Diptera) are described (one named), from the early Eocene (Ypresian) Okanagan Highlands of British Columbia, Canada and Washington State, United States of

New and poorly known Cenozoic sawflies of France (Hymenoptera, Tenthredinoidea, Pamphilioidea)

Paleomonoctenus patriciae, new genus and species of Diprionidae, is described from the Uppermost Oligocene of Aix-en-Provence (France), and some of its characters are proper to DipRioninae, suggesting the necessity of a phylogenetic analysis of the family.

A synopsis of the sawflies (Hymenoptera: Symphyta) of America south of the United States: introduction, Xyelidae, Pamphiliidae, Cimbicidae, Diprionidae, Xiphydriidae, Siricidae, Orussidae, Cephidae

Eight families of Symphyta for the Western Hemisphere south of the United States are reviewed and three new combinations and six new synonyms are proposed.

The European Pamphiliidae (Hymenoptera: Symphyta), with special reference to the Netherlands

Keys are given to the European genera and species of the Pamphiliidae (Symphyta: Megalodontoidea). Ten species are added to the list of the Dutch Hymenoptera. Cephalcia alashanica europaea Benes,

Wasps (Insecta: Vespida=Hymenoptera) from the Purbeck and Wealden (Lower Cretaceous) of southern England and their biostratigraphical and palaeoenvironmental significance

The Purbeck fauna is more diverse generically and contains a greater number of endemics than the Wealden fauna, and the absence of xyelids from the Purbeck and Wealdon is consistent with a warm climate.

A new Cretaceous genus of xyelydid sawfly illuminating nygmata evolution in Hymenoptera

A new genus and species from the family Xyelydidae, Rectilyda sticta gen. et sp.

Corylus, Carpinus, and Palaeocarpinus (Betulaceae) from the Middle Eocene Klondike Mountain and Allenby Formations of Northwestern North America

The presence in the Okanogan Highlands floras of a suite of coryloid plants including both extinct and extant genera demonstrates that, like the birch subfamily Betuloideae, the subfamily Coryloideae was also a significant and diverse group in western North America during the middle Eocene.

Tertiary giant lacewings (Neuroptera: Polystoechotidae): Revision and description of new taxa from western north America and Denmark

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.

Early Evolution of Apocrita (Insecta, Hymenoptera) as Indicated by New Findings in the Middle Jurassic of Daohugou, Northeast China

The classification and phylogeny of the basal Vespina (= Orussoidea + Apocrita) are reconsidered based primarily on rich and well preserved material from the Middle Jurassic of Daohugou in Inner Mongolia, China and six infraorders are proposed for the suborder Vespine with the following taxonomic structure.

New Palaeogene horntail wasps (Hymenoptera, Siricidae) and a discussion of their fossil record.

Although several characters of the wing venation of this fossil are similar to the extant genus Xoanon, there remain some doubts concerning the generic placement.
