Vitali F. 2017. Two new fossil species of Tillomorphites Vitali (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) and remarks on the morphological evolution, mimicry, biogeography and phylogeny of the tribe Tillomorphini. Baltic J. Coleopterol., 17(2): 147- 160.

The genus Tillomorphites Vitali, 2011 is revised with the description of two new species from Baltic Amber: Tillomorphites spinipes n. sp. and Tillomorphites otiliae n. sp. New observations and an improved reconstruction of Tillomorphites robustus Vitali, 2011 are provided. The typical characters of this genus are shared by the Ecuadorian extant species Euderces elachys Martins & Galileo, 2013 so that Tillomorphites elachys (Martins & Galileo, 2013) n. comb. is proposed. Biogeographical and biologic remarks on the genus Tillomorphites and on the phylogeny of Tillomorphini concerning distribution and morphologic evolution are hypothesised.
