TitleOn a false and a genuine Caddis-fly from Burmese amber (Insecta: Trichoptera, Homoptera)
JournalBulletin Zoologisch Museum
AbstractTwo specimens of fossil insects in amber from Burma (burmite), belonging to the B.M. (N.H.), London, were studied. The first one, described by Cockerell (1917) as a new genus and species of Trichoptera (Plecophlebus nebulosus) belongs, in fact, to the Homoptera Auchenorhyncha. The second one is the first caddis-fly (Trichoptera) known from Burmese amber; it is here described under the name of Burminoptila bemeneha g.n., sp.n.; this hydroptilid seems to be the most primitive known representative of the subfamily Hydroptilinae, and is in some respects closer to the primitive subfamily Ptilocolepinae. These are the first records concerning the extinct caddis-fly faunas of the Oriental Region.
