A new myrmeleontoid genus and species from the Lower Cretaceous Crato Formation (Neuroptera, Babinskaiidae)

Abstract : A new babinskaiid genus and species, Paraneliana sennlaubi gen. et sp. nov., is described and figured from the Lower Cretaceous Crato Formation (Brazil) on the basis of a well-preserved specimen. This new genus is closely related to the genera Neliana (also from the Crato Formation) and Pseudoneliana (mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber). This new discovery confirms the important diversity of the Babinskaiidae during the early to mid-Cretaceous. We also comment on the original description of the other Crato species Neliana impolluta Martins-Neto, 1997 and we conclude that the species has to be treated as incertae sedis until a complete revision of the genus or more widely of the family Babinskaiidae.
