Abstract

Propolyssenia gen. nov. with Propolyssenia wohltmanni sp. nov., based on larva, and Eothrombium fortesambiense sp. nov. based on active postlarval form, are described from Baltic amber. The new genus shares some characters with the extant Polydiscia and Lassenia. The new species are among the three fossil amber representatives of Tanaupodidae known to date. The present-day fauna of Tanaupodidae is revisited.
