Abstract

Szwedo J. 2009. — First discovery of Neazoniidae (Insecta, Hemiptera, Fulgoromorpha) in the Early Cretaceous amber of Archingeay, SW France. Geodiversitas 31 (1) : 105-116.

The extinct genus and species of planthopper family Neazoniidae, Akmazeina santonorum n. gen., n. sp., are described. This is the first record of the family in the Lower Cretaceous French amber of Archingeay. The new genus differs from Neazonia Szwedo, 2007 in subtriangular vertex, wider trigons; sensory pits only in upper portion of frons, fused submedian carinae, diverging only in upper portion of frons, slightly elevated disc of pronotum, delimited by semicircular carinae, hind tibia with distinct, knee lateral tooth. The phylogenetic relationships of Neazoniidae and some other planthoppers families as well as their ecological affinities are discussed.
