ABSTRACT Trace fossils of basal, apterygote (wingless) insects from the Pennsylvanian-aged Rhode Island Formation of southeastern New England include the body imprint Tonganoxichnus buildexensis and the trackways Mitchellichnus cf. ferrydenensis, Siskemia elegans, Stiallia pilosa, and Stiaria intermedia. Trackways with double and triple medial impressions (S. elegans and M. ferrydenensis) are rare among trace fossils attributed to such insects. To determine how these unusual trackway… 
Arthropod trace fossils from Eocene cold climate continental strata of King George Island, West Antarctica
Siltstone and sandstone beds of the Mount Wawel Formation (Eocene) contain trace fossils interpreted as insect resting traces and arthropod trackways, the latest determined as Glaciichnium australis
Grammepus Hitchcock, 1858: A sedimentary variant of the fossil insect trackway Lithographus
The ichnogenus Grammepus, which is inferred to have been made by a winged (pterygote) insect, was differentiated from other ichnotaxa because its largest tracks were nearly continuous, forming two
A new insect trackway from the Upper Jurassic—Lower Cretaceous eolian sandstones of São Paulo State, Brazil: implications for reconstructing desert paleoecology
TLDR
Comparisons with neoichnological studies and morphological inferences indicate that the producer of Paleohelcura araraquarensis isp.
Neoichnology of the Burrowing Spiders Gorgyrella inermis (Araneae: Mygalomorphae) and Hogna lenta (Araneae: Araneomorphae)
  • J. Hils
  • Environmental Science, Geography

TLDR
The morphology of burrows produced by the mygalomorph spider Gorgyrella inermis and the araneomorph spider Hogna lenta are examined and changes in sediment density and sediment moisture did not result in statistically significant changes in burrows.
Insect Trace Fossils in Substrates Other than Paleosols II. Bones, Caddisfly Cases, Trackways, Imprints and Aerial Nests

TLDR
The universe of insect trace fossils also include those produced in bones, caddisfly cases, trackways, imprints and aerial nests, which may yield detailed evidence of insect ventral morphology.
Phylogenetic analyses with four new Cretaceous bristletails reveal inter‐relationships of Archaeognatha and Gondwana origin of Meinertellidae
TLDR
The results confirm the phylogenetic position of the new genera, clarify the monophyly of Meinertellidae and indicate that the ‘paleo‐types’ excluding Ditrigoniophthalmus are nested within the Machilidae group, but suggest that the three subfamilies withinMachilidae may be artificial.

TLDR
Members of the extant group of Machilidae were already present in the Middle Triassic, at least ~100 Myr before the previous estimate, according to phylogenetic analyses performed on Archaeognatha.
Megapezia longipes Willard and Cleaves 1930 from the Pennsylvanian Rhode Island Formation of Massachusetts: ichnotaxonomic status
  • P. Getty

  • 2016
The type and only specimen of the ichnospecies Megapezia longipes , from the Pennsylvanian Rhode Island Forma-tion of Plainville, Massachusetts, consists of two poorly defined tracks, one made by a
Central nervous system and muscular bundles preserved in a 240 million year old giant bristletail (Archaeognatha: Machilidae)
TLDR
A new reconstruction of the possible character evolution leading towards modern archaeognathan forms is provided, suggesting the acquisition of novel features in a lineage of apterygote insects during the Permian or the Lower Triassic.
RETRODEFORMATION OF CARBONIFEROUS TRACE FOSSILS FROM THE NARRAGANSETT BASIN, UNITED STATES, USING RAINDROP IMPRINTS AND BEDDING-CLEAVAGE INTERSECTION LINEATION AS STRAIN MARKERS
Abstract Retrodeformation of fossils can improve taxonomic and paleobiologic interpretations, but fossils that lack symmetry or other regular geometric properties are difficult to retrodeform unless

Abstract:  Abundant arthropod walking and jumping traces, from the Lower Permian Robledo Mountains Formation of southern New Mexico, provide direct evidence of the locomotory techniques of monurans,

TLDR
Consistent evidence from several biological disciplines shows that protowings evolved from thoracic side lobes, which probably originated from serial, articulated outer appendages of the arthropodan leg.
