A new chironomid with a long proboscis from Eocene Baltic Amber (Diptera: Chironomidae: Tanypodinae)

Ryszard Szadziewski , Elżbieta Sontag , Patrycja Dominiak


Both sexes of a new fossil genus and species Eoprocladius hoffeinsorum gen. et sp. n. from Eocene Baltic amber are described and illustrated. This is the first report of a chironomid with such a long proboscis within the subfamily Tanypodinae and the tribe Procladiini. Within the family the elongated proboscis with narrow labella and suitable to feed on nectar evolved independently among Eocene and extant adult non-biting midges of the subfamilies Orthocladiinae and Tanypodinae. Djalmabatista maillardi Doitteau & Nel, 2007 from Eocene amber of France is placed in the extant genus Procladius Skuse: Procladius maillardi (Doitteau & Nel, 2007), comb. nov.
