Paleoripiphorus deploegi gen. n., sp. n. and Macrosiagon ebboi sp. n., described from two French Albo-Cenomanian ambers (mid Cretaceous), are the oldest definitely identified representatives of the Ripiphoridae: Ripiphorinae. They belong to or are closely related to extant genera of this coleopteran subfamily. Together with Myodites burmiticus Cockerell, 1917 from the Albian Burmese amber, they demonstrate that the group is distinctly older than suggested by the hitherto available fossil record… Expand

A new ripiphorid beetle from Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber sheds light on early evolution of the extant subfamily Ripidiinae (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae)
TLDR
A remarkable new genus and species of Ripidiinae, Protoripidius burmiticus gen. et sp. Expand
The first fossil wedge-shaped beetle (Coleoptera, Ripiphoridae) from the middle Jurassic of China
A new species of Ripiphoridae Gemminger & Harold, 1870, Archaeoripiphorus nuwa gen. et sp. nov., is described and illustrated from a well-preserved impression fossil from the Middle JurassicExpand
Enigmatic tenebrionoid beetles from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis under maximum parsimony recovered Kulindrobor gen. nov. as sister to a member of the poorly-defined, polyphyletic Melandryidae with low support, and provisionally place the new genus as family incertae sedis within Tenebrionoidea. Expand
A miniaturized beetle larva in Cretaceous Burmese amber: reinterpretation of a fossil “strepsipteran triungulin”
A wingless and eyeless tiny fossil embedded in Cretaceous amber from Myanmar is described and interpreted phylogenetically as beetle larva, very likely belonging to a cucujiform group of ColeopteraExpand
Spinotoma ruicheni : A new Late Cretaceous genus and species of wedge-shaped beetle from Burmese amber (Coleoptera, Ripiphoridae, Pelecotominae)
TLDR
A morphological similarity between Spinotoma and modern pelecotomines and the occurrence of xylophagous beetles in the Burmese amber suggest a similar host preference in wood-boring beetles for this species, shedding lights on an ancient host-parasitoid relationship in the late Mesozoic. Expand
A putative twisted-wing parasitoid planidium (Insecta: Strepsiptera) in Taimyr Upper Cretaceous amber
TLDR
A planidium is newly recorded from Upper Cretaceous amber of the Taimyr Peninsula, Krasnoyarsk Territory, Siberia, and tentatively attributed to the order Strepsiptera, representing the first record of this lineage from these deposits. Expand
A remarkable diversity of parasitoid beetles (Ripiphoridae) in Cretaceous amber, with a summary of the Mesozoic record of Tenebrionoidea
TLDR
The presence of three species of Amberocula, additional material of P. deploegi, and two new genera of Pelecotominae demonstrates a surprising abundance of ripiphorids in Cretaceous amber, and comments on the past diversity of this parasitoid family during the period are provided. Expand
Macrosiagon deuvei n. sp. (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae) from the French Eocene amber
Abstract Macrosiagon deuvei n. sp., the second fossil representative of this extant genus of Ripiphoridae: Ripiphorinae: Macrosiagonini is described from the lowermost Eocene amber of Oise (France).Expand
Two new ripidiine species in Dominican amber with evidence of aggregative behaviour of males "frozen" in the fossil record (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae)
Ten amber inclusions of male Ripidiinae (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae) are reported from Early Miocene deposits of the Dominican Republic and compared with extant species of Neorrhipidius Viana, 1958Expand
New ripiphorid beetles in mid-Cretaceous amber from Myanmar (Coleoptera: Ripiphoridae): First Pelecotominae and possible Mesozoic aggregative behaviour in male Ripidiinae
TLDR
The syninclusion of eight males of Ripidiinae is interpreted as a result of aggregative behaviour during the flight activity of males, thereby representing the earliest documented evidence of such ethology. Expand
