Macrochile hornei sp. nov. from Baltic amber (Upper Eocene) is described and illustrated. Podemacrochile gen. nov. is described with Podemacrochile baltica (Podenas, 1997) as type species. A key to the genera and species of Tanyderidae known from Baltic amber is presented. 

Two new species of the genus Dacochile (Diptera, Tanyderidae) from Burmese amber

An additional drawing and description of Dacochile microsoma Poinar & Brownis provided, and a new material supports the classification of this genus in Tanyderidae, and not Psychodidae, is provided.

Nannotanyderus kubekovensis Sp. Nov. (Diptera: Tanyderidae) from the Middle Jurassic of Kubekovo (Russia)

Abstract. A new species, Nannotanyderus kubekovensis, belonging to Tanyderidae (Diptera, Nematocera) from the Middle Jurassic of Siberia (Russia) is described and figured. Three hitherto known

The first Tanyderidae (Diptera) from Lower Cretaceous Álava amber (Spain)

The new genus Espanoderus barbarae is the smallest member of Tanyderinae and the first member of the family from the Álava amber and the position of the new genus in a phylogenetic tree ofTanyderidae is presented.

Nannotanyderinae: a new subfamily of Tanyderidae (Diptera)

Based on morphological evidence, it is hypothesized that two separate evolutionary lineages at the subfamily level exist, namely Tanyderinae Osten-Sacken, 1879 and Nannotanyderinee subfam.

Male terminalia and their rotation in Tanyderidae (Insecta, Diptera, Nematocera) since the Mesozoic

The structure of the male terminalia and their rotation are reviewed in both extinct and extant genera of Tanyderidae based on new observations and literature and the size of cerci show greater variation among extinct taxa than among the extant ones.

New species of Tanyderidae (Diptera) from the Jiulongshan Formation of China

These species are circumscribed using well-preserved fossil specimens with bodies and complete wings from the late Middle Jurassic Jiulongshan Formation of Daohugou in eastern Inner Mongolia, China.

The Fossil Record of Long-Proboscid Nectarivorous Insects

The paper overviews the fossil record of insects with long mouthparts and rostra adapted to feeding on floral nectar and pollination drops of extinct gymnosperms. The presence of suctorial mouthparts
