Elektrophthiria magnifica gen. n., sp. n., oldest bee fly of the bombyliid subfamily Phthiriinae, is described from the Low- ermost Eocene amber of Oise (France). It suggests at least a Late Cretaceous age for this group, coincident with the diversification of the flowering plants. Eurodoliopteryx inexpectatus gen. n., sp. n., oldest representative of the mythicomyiid subfamily Glabellulinae, is probably the sister genus of extant Doliopteryx, distributed in Africa and the Arabian peninsula…

The oldest representative of the bombyliid bee fly in the earliest Eocene French amber
Eoconophorina delfineae gen. et sp. nov., the oldest representative of the bee fly subfamily Bombyliinae, is described from the earliest Eocene Oise amber (France). It is characterized by the

TLDR
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.
Diptera of the middle Eocene Kishenehn Formation. I. Documentation of diversity at the family level
TLDR
The Coal Creek Member of the Kishenehn Formation in northwestern Montana, USA, is an emerging middle Eocene Lagerstätte and the diversity of flies at this locality is enumerated, at the family level, to help elucidate the Eocene radiation of Diptera in North America.
New microbombyliids (Diptera: Mythicomyiidae) from Eocene Baltic and Rovno ambers, with notes on previously described amber species.
TLDR
With the description of the new species in this study, the Tertiary fauna of Mythicomyiidae is now 17 species in 8 genera known from Baltic, Saxon, Bitterfeld, French, Rovno, and Dominican ambers.
Evolution of Lower Brachyceran Flies (Diptera) and Their Adaptive Radiation with Angiosperms
TLDR
The fossil record and early evolution of some Mesozoic lower brachyceran flies together with new records in Burmese amber reveal that some flower-visiting groups had diversified during the mid-Cretaceous, consistent with the rise of angiosperms to widespread floristic dominance.
A new genus and species of micro bee fly from the Earliest Eocene French amber (Diptera: Mythicomyiidae: Psiloderoidinae).
TLDR
A new genus and a new species of this subfamily of Mythicomyiidae are described based on fossils from the Earliest Eocene of Oise (France) based on a Psiloderoidinae, already described in this amber.
