Abstract:

Three new genera of extinct Dictyopharidae, Lophopidae and Eurybrachyidae respectively are described. Wedelphus gen. nov. with Wedelphus dichopteroides sp.nov. placed in Dictyopharidae, Baninus gen. nov. with Baninus thuringiorum sp. nov.of the family Lophopidae and Amalaberga gen. nov. with Amalaberga ostrogothiorum sp. nov. placed in Eurybrachidae (first fossil record of the family) are described, all fromdeposits of the Grube Messel Lagerstätte in Germany. A representative of an unrecognised family, possibly related to Henriksenopterix Petrulevičius, 2005 is reported. The oil shales of the Messel maar in Hessen are well known for their extremely rich fossil flora and fauna. They are of Lower Middle Eocene age (about 48 million years) and contain a highly diverse insect fauna.
