New soldier beetles (Cantharidae) from Baltic, Burmese and Dominican ambers of the Anders Damgaard amber collection
Fanti F., Damgaard A. L. 2019. New soldier beetles (Cantharidae) from Baltic, Burmese and Dominican ambers of the Anders Damgaard amber collection. Baltic J. Coleopterol., 19(2): 101 - 125.
We describe and illustrate nine new fossil taxa of soldier beetles preserved in the Anders Damgaard collection (Denmark), from the major amber deposits of the world. From the Baltic amber: Cantharis (Cantharis) borki sp. nov., Lycocerus jesperibuchi sp. nov. and Mantimalthinus bartholini sp. nov. From the Burmese amber: Burmomiles blixenae sp. nov., Sanaungulus christensenae sp. nov., Sanaungulus fabriciusi sp. nov., Sanaungulus strungei sp. nov., and Sanaungulus troelsikloevedali sp. nov. From the Dominican amber: Tytthonyx (Tytthonyx) stadili sp. nov. that is extraordinarily well preserved, even with the original color. Burmomiles blixenae and Tytthonyx stadili are the second fossil species described of the two genera. Sanaungulus Fanti, Damgaard & Ellenberger, 2018 appears very rich in species during the Cretaceous in Myanmar. Mantimalthinus bartholini is the second representative of Malthininae that has cuticular vesical extruded from its abdominal segments.
