Four new genera, Andepteron gen.n., Aplopteron gen.n., Ceratolycus gen.n. and Petrovia gen.n., and nineteen new species of leptolycine netwinged beetles: Andepteron bolivari, A. nubile, Aplopteron yasuniense, Cephalolycus cajanumaensis, C. pichinchensis, Ceratolycus victoriae, Ceratoprion alexi, C. diosense, C. loretense, Flabellocaenia iquitosensis, F. ocopensis, F. pastazensis, F. tiputiniensis, Petrovia clavicula, Prioceraton calabazense, P. tishechkini, Pseudacroleptus aleksandri, P. orellanus and Tishechkinia petrovi spp.n. — are described from Ecuador and Peru. Cephalolycus Pic, 1926 and Flabellolycinella Kleine, 1941 are transferred from Calopterini (Lycinae) to Leptolycini (Leptolycinae). Flabellolycinella Kleine, 1941, syn.n. is put in synonymy with Pseudacroleptus Pic, 1911. Keys to leptolycine genera and species of Ecuador and Peru are provided. © RUSSIAN ENTOMOLOGICAL JOURNAL, 2017.

The fossil soldier beetle Curche pauli gen.nov., sp.nov. is described from Baltic amber. The new taxon is compared with the morphologically close extant and fossil ones. © 2014 Baltic Institute of Coleopterology. All rights received.


A new fossil genus of net-winged beetles, Protolopheros gen. n., and a new species, Protolopheros hoffeinsorum sp. n., are described from the Baltic amber. The new taxon is placed in Erotini, next to Lopheros Leconte, 1881. The extant Pseudaplatopterus (Eropterus) Green, 1951, comb. n. is lowered in rank and placed as a subgenus of the fossil Pseudaplatopterus Kleine, 1940. The extant Kolibaceum (Laterialis) Kazantsev, 1990, comb. n. is lowered in rank and placed as a subgenus of the fossil Kolibaceum Winkler, 1987. Copyright © 2013 Magnolia Press.

Seven new species of net-winged beetles of the genus Ditua Waterhouse, 1879: D. balkei, D. elevaticostata, D. nigra, D. siniaevi, D. spinifera, D. telnovi and D. tuzovi spp.n. — are described from New Guinea and adjacent islands. Ditua dichroma (Boisduval, 1835), the type species of the genus, is illustrated. Ditua alternata Bourgeois, 1892 n.rev. is revalidated from synonymy with D. dichroma. A key to the species of Ditua is provided. Some autapomorphies of the genus are discussed. © RUSSIAN ENTOMOLOGICAL JOURNAL, 2016.

Two new fossil genera, Electromethes gen. n. (Omethidae) and Electotreta gen. n. (Lampyridae), and two new species, Electromethes alleni sp. n. and Electotreta rasnitsyni sp. n., are described from the Baltic amber. The new taxa appear to be related to the extant omethids (Electromethes) and ototretines (Electotreta) from the East Asia. Copyright © 2012 Magnolia Press.
