The family Corydasialidae, currently comprising two monotypic genera from the Eocene, is one of the few groups with undetermined ordinal placement in Neuropterida, although it was previously considered to be an intermediate form between Corydalidae and Sialidae in Megaloptera. Here we describe a new taxon of Corydasialidae – Megalopteroneura chenxingi gen. et sp. nov. – based on an exquisitely preserved specimen in mid-Cretaceous (Albian–Cenomanian) amber of Myanmar. The new corydasialid in… 
Systematic palaeontology Order Neuroptera Linnaeus , 1758 Family Chrysopidae Schneider
TLDR
The late Eocene Baltic amber represents the oldest horizon where Chrysopinae and Nothochrysinae are found to coexist, and it is highly likely that Chrysopidae were extremely rare in these forests.
A new and diverse paleofauna of the extinct snakefly family Baissopteridae from the mid-Cretaceous of Myanmar (Raphidioptera)
TLDR
The morphological diversity in these Cretaceous baissopterids, particularly with some specialized and unique characters, highlights the early radiation of snakeflies formed in the complex tropical forest ecosystem of the mid-Cretaceous.
The first green lacewings from the late Eocene Baltic amber
TLDR
The late Eocene Baltic amber represents the oldest horizon where Chrysopinae and Nothochrysinae are found to coexist, and it is highly likely that Chrysopidae were extremely rare in these forests.
A world checklist of extant and extinct species of Megaloptera (Insecta: Neuropterida)
TLDR
A global synonymical checklist of the species and higher taxa of the insect order Megaloptera is provided, and an updated set of keys to the world families, subfamilies, and genus groups is provided.
A catalogue of Burmite inclusions
TLDR
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.
Bibliometric Analyses of Web of Science Illuminate Research Advances of Neuropterida
TLDR
The beginning and development of the research in the field of Neuropterida was summarized, showing that the United States and China had the most publications on the neuropterida and were the main countries for research.
New antlions (Insecta: Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae) from the mid-Cretaceous of Myanmar and their phylogenetic implications
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the Burmese amber antlions shows that the antlion species presently described belong to different major clades across the phylogenetic tree, suggesting a diverse palaeofauna of this family from the mid-Cretaceous of Myanmar.

A Remarkable New Family of Jurassic Insects (Neuroptera) with Primitive Wing Venation and Its Phylogenetic Position in Neuropterida
TLDR
The presence of the presumed AA1+2 in wings of Parakseneuridae is a unique plesiomorphic condition hitherto unknown in Neuropterida, the clade comprising Neuroptera, Megaloptera, Raphidioptera.
New transitional fossil snakeflies from China illuminate the early evolution of Raphidioptera
BackgroundRaphidioptera (snakeflies) is a holometabolous order of the superorder Neuropterida characterized by the narrowly elongate adult prothorax and the long female ovipositor. Mesozoic
Cladistic analysis of Neuroptera and their systematic position within Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola: Neuropterida: Neuroptera)
TLDR
At the ordinal level, the analysis provided clear support for the hypothesis that Megaloptera + Neuroptera are sister groups, which upsets the conventional Megalptera’+’Raphidioptera hypothesis.
The second genus and species of the extinct neuropteroid family Corydasialidae, from early Eocene McAbee, British Columbia, Canada: do they belong to Megaloptera?
TLDR
If this is a megalopteran, it is the first specimen of the order from the insect-rich Okanagan Highlands series of Ypresian localities, which occur sporadically across the southern interior of British Columbia, Canada into north-central Washington, USA.
Raphidiodea aus dem Lias und die Phylogenie der Kamelhalsfliegen (Insecta: Holometabola)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among the Raphidiodea are determined based on the analysis of the wing-morphology based on uncertainties concerning the character states of similarities shared byPriscaenigma andHondelagia and several possible relationship schemes are discussed.
A revision of the late Eocene snakeflies (Raphidioptera) of the Florissant Formation, Colorado, with special reference to the wing venation of the Raphidiomorpha.
TLDR
The snakeflies (Raphidioptera) of the late Eocene Florissant Formation (Colorado, USA) are revised and venational synapomorphies of Raphidiomorpha are examined and a new diagnosis for it is provided based on these characters.
Mesozoic lacewings from China provide phylogenetic insight into evolution of the Kalligrammatidae (Neuroptera)
TLDR
This work describes three new subfamilies, four new genera, twelve new species and four unassigned species from the late Middle Jurassic Jiulongshan and mid Early Cretaceous Yixian Formations of China, suggesting that eastern Eurasia likely was an important diversification center for the Kalligrammatidae.
Two significant new snakeflies from Baltic amber, with discussion on autapomorphies of the order and its included taxa (Raphidioptera)
TLDR
The erection of the new subfamily Succinoraphidiinee as the sister group of the Raphidiinae (comprising all other known members of the family) triggers reconsiderations concerning reliable autapomorphies of Raphidioptera, which are discussed.
The presence of the recurrent veinlet in the Middle Jurassic Nymphidae (Neuroptera): a unique character condition in Myrmeleontoidea
TLDR
The recurrent veinlet in these species of Nymphidae is interpreted as a remnant of the condition present more basally in the psychopsoid + ithonoid + chrysopoid + myrmeleontoid clade (i.e., as a plesiomorphy), and the short ScA terminating on ScP is considered to be an autapomorphy of Neuroptera.
