Alekseev V.I., Bukejs A. 2021. Two fossil species of Petaliini White (Coleoptera: Ptinidae: Dorcatominae) from Eocene Baltic amber. Baltic J. Coleopterol., 21(1): 11 - 18.

Two fossil species of the tribe Petaliini tentatively assigned to the extant American genus Petalium LeConte, P. bruteno sp. nov. and P. widewuto sp. nov., are described from Baltic amber. The data illustrates and indicates the presence of the tribe in the amberiferous forests that once occupied the territories of the eastern Baltic region and thus in western Palaearctic during the Eocene.
