Hemiptera Heteroptera Tingidae lace bugs Late Eocene Paleocader new species

Abstract

Four species are presently assigned to the fossil Tingidae genus Paleocader Froeschner, 1996: P. avitus (Drake, 1950), P. strictus Golub & Popov, 1998, P. serafini Heiss, 2008 and P. gusenleitnerorum Heiss, 2013, all described from the Eocene Baltic amber. The new species P. balticus sp. nov. and P. pulchellus sp. nov. originate as well from Baltic amber, and P. rovnensis sp. nov. from Ukrainian amber deposits, both of Eocene age. A key to all seven species of Paleocader is presented.
