Abstract

In this paper a new genus and species of the female aphid Hormatalis lancigerens Wegierek and Wang, gen. et sp. nov., in the fossil family Isolitaphidae are described and illustrated from the mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber of northern Myanmar. Based on a cladistic analysis the Cretaceous aphid family Isolitaphidae, including Hormatalis Wegierek and Wang, gen. nov. and Isolitaphis Poinar, 2017, is recognized as monophyletic and sister to siphunculi aphids.
