Abstract

Investigation of fossils in lower Eocene Fushun amber from China keeps proving to be of major importance for understanding Eocene Euro-Asian insect diversity and distribution. Three new species of predatory biting midges in the fossil genera Mantohelea and Gedanohelea are described. Mantohelea sinica n. sp., Gedanohelea fushunensis n. sp. and Gedanohelea liaoningensis n. sp. from Eocene Fushun amber have their closest relatives in European Eocene Baltic amber. This not only expands generic distribution range from Europe to Asia but also strengthens the hypothesis that dispersal between both regions took place even though the Euro-Asian landmasses were separated by the Turgai Strait during the Eocene. In addition, the fossils supply evidence for a lower Eocene age of Baltic amber.
