Abstract The mantidfly genus Nolima Navás, 1914 (Neuroptera, Mantispidae, Calomantispinae) is herein revised. Nolima is endemic to the New World, ranging from the southwestern United States south to Costa Rica. Nolimainfensa Navás, N.pinal Rehn, and N.victor Navás are redescribed, while the new species Nolimacostaricensis Reynoso & Contreras, sp. nov. is described from Costa Rica. The species N.dine Rehn and N.kantsi Rehn are synonymized with N.pinal. Additionally, the species N.praeliator Nav…

New Cretaceous fossil mantispids highlight the palaeodiversity of the extinct subfamily Doratomantispinae (Neuroptera: Mantispidae)

Some putative apomorphies supporting the monophyly of Doratomantispinae and its close relationship with the derived mantispid clade are found, which represents a lineage with the richest species diversity among mantispids known from Myanmar amber.

Neuroptera Diversity from Tacaná Volcano, Mexico: Species Composition, Altitudinal and Biogeographic Pattern of the Fauna

Recent survey efforts of the Neuroptera diversity of the Tacaná volcano, Chiapas, along an altitudinal gradient, increased the known fauna of this order in Mexico by 31 species and two genera, with extension of the known distributional range of 25 species of five families.
