Fanti F. 2021. A new genus of Cantharidae from Eocene Baltic amber found in Poland, with phoretic mites. Baltic J. Coleopterol., 21(2): 105 - 110.

The new taxon, discovered in amber found in Poland, has intermediate characters between the Holarctic realm genera Podistra and Rhagonycha. In addition, some phoretic Acarina are present along the beetle’s body - only the second time phoretic Acarina have been documented on a fossil soldier beetle.
