Synopsis A preliminary definition of the Polystoechotidae (Insecta, Neuroptera) based on wing characters is provided. Tertiary Polystoechotidae are revised; the genus Palaeopsychops Andersen (10 species) and the new collective genus Polystoechotites gen. n. (6 species) are recognised. Ten new species (eight named) are described from the earliest Early Eocene Fur Formation (Denmark) and the Early to early Middle Eocene Okanagan Highlands (Quilchena and Horsefly River, British Columbia, Canada… 
Diverse new Middle Jurassic Osmylopsychopidae (Neuroptera) from China shed light on the classification of psychopsoids
TLDR
The venation of the new genera of Osmylopsychopidae shows that Brongniartiellidae is a synonym of this family, and these new taxa allow a better understanding of the relationships between the psychopsoid families Os myloppsychopidae, Psychopsidae and BrongsniartIEllidae.
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 FOSSIL LACEWINGS AND ANTLIONS (INSECTA, NEUROPTERA) FROM THE LOWER CRETACEOUS CRATO FORMATION OF BRAZIL
TLDR
Remarkable new fossil taxa of Neuroptera from the laminated limestone of the Crato Formation, north‐east Brazil, are described and a revised diagnosis of Palaeoleontidae is provided, based on a new interpretation of venational characters evident on the exceptionally well‐preserved specimen of P. magnus.
A Diverse New Assemblage of Green Lacewings (Insecta, Neuroptera, Chrysopidae) from the Early Eocene Okanagan Highlands, Western North America
TLDR
The early Eocene green lacewings of the Okanagan Highlands deposits of McAbee, and Driftwood Canyon, British Columbia and Republic, Washington are treated in detail for the first time, with the richest described assemblage of the family anywhere in the fossil record.
New Dinopanorpidae (Insecta: Mecoptera) from the Eocene Okanagan Highlands (British Columbia, Canada and Washington State, USA)
Six new species of the extinct family Dinopanorpidae (Mecoptera) are described in the new genus Dinokanaga gen. nov. from five Early (and early Middle?) Eocene Okanagan Highlands localities in
Bulldog Ants of the Eocene Okanagan Highlands and History of the Subfamily (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Myrmeciinae)
TLDR
The fossil record indicates a northern hemisphere origin of the Myrmeciinae, and the presence of Ypresiomyrma in Denmark and British Columbia further reflects the well-documented Paleogene cross-North Atlantic distributions of biota.
Fossil dragonflies (Odonata: Anisoptera) from the early Eocene Okanagan Highlands, western North America
TLDR
The first dragonflies (Odonata: Anisoptera) from the early Eocene Okanagan Highlands of far-western North America are described from nine fossils and the dominance of Aeshnidae is consistent with other Paleocene and Eocene fossil localities.

Silky lacewings (Neuroptera: Psychopsidae) from the Eocene-Paleocene transition of Denmark with a review of the fossil record and comments on phylogeny and zoogeography
TLDR
Thirty-four fossil insect wings from the Fur Formation of Denmark (Eocene-Paleocene transition) are recognised as neuropteran forewings standing close to extant Psychopsidae (silky lacewings) based on their possession of a vena triplica in the forewing, leading to a new genus, Palaeopsychops, and four new species.
New Dinopanorpidae (Insecta: Mecoptera) from the Eocene Okanagan Highlands (British Columbia, Canada and Washington State, USA)

Ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) of Formation Green River and some other Middle Eocene deposits of North America
TLDR

Ecology and Distribution of Cenozoic Eomeropidae (Mecoptera), and a New Species of Eomerope Cockerell from the Early Eocene McAbee Locality, British Columbia, Canada
TLDR
This is the first record of the family Eomeropidae in the Okanagan Highlands fossil deposits of British Columbia and Washington state and the new species seems to be closely related to E. asiatica.
Phylogeny of the Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola)
TLDR
Aquatic larvae, regarded as independent apomorphies of megaloptera and neuropteran Nevrorthidae and Sisyridae for a long time, are re‐interpreted as a synapomorphy of Megaloptera + Neuroptera and thus plesiomorphic within these groups.
