Ampulicomorpha janzeni sp. nov. and Cretembolemus orapensis gen. et sp. nov. are described from Burmese amber (Upper Cretaceous; Lower Cenomanian) and Orapa sediments (Upper Cretaceous; Turonian), respectively. A. janzeni is the first embolemid species found in amber from Myanmar (c. 99 Ma). C. orapensis is the first fossil embolemid species found in the southern hemisphere, in Orapa Kimberlitic deposits (c. 91 Ma). A discussion on the phylogenetic significance of the above new records is presented, together with a tentative history of Embolemidae and their relations with their hosts. The new combinations Ampulicomorpha perialla (Ortega-Blanco et al., 2011) comb. nov. (=Embolemus periallus) and Ampulicomorpha reticulata (Van Achterberg in Van Achterberg & Van Kats, 2000) comb. nov. (= Embolemus reticulatus) are proposed. © The Trustees of the Natural History Museum, London 2014.

Anteon seramense sp. nov. is described from Seram Island (Indonesia). Seram is an island situated in a transition area between the Oriental and the Australian regions. Anteon seramense can be distinguished from the related Australian species A. giluwense Olmi and A. chelogynoides (Perkins) by the different sculpture of the scutum (granulated in A. seramense, punctate and unsculptured among punctures in A. giluwense and A. chelogynoides) and the different distal apex of the protarsal segment 5 (deeply hollow in A. seramense, not hollow in A. giluwense and A. chelogynoides). Anteon seramense sp. nov. can be distinguished from the related Oriental species A. heppneri Olmi and A. thai Olmi by the different shape of the protarsal segment 5 (basal part slightly longer than distal part in A. seramense, much longer in A. heppneri and A. thai).
