A new taxon of the soldier beetles’ genus †Poinarelektronmiles from Burmese amber (Coleoptera: Cantharidae)
Keywords:Resin, Burmese amber (Kachin amber), paleoentomology, taxonomy, new species
Poinarelektronmiles cuaroni sp. n., a new fossil species of soldier beetles from the Cretaceous Burmese amber is diagnosed and illustrated, in this document. It is characterized by the antennomeres V-IX with an extremely long antennal process, and the last antennomere is very robust. Unlike what some authors have recently proposed, and as in other genera of Cretaceous soldier beetles, the antennal processes are evidently inserted at the apex of the antennomeres, in the intersegmental zone between the apex and the base of the next antennomere.
