Abstract

The green lacewings or Chrysopoidea are relatively rare in the fossil record, especially for the Cenozoic, while they seem to be rather diverse and frequent in the Mesozoic (Nel et al, 2005; Makarkin & Menon, 2005). The Chrysopidae seem to be better represented in the Eocene and the Miocene than in the Oligocene outcrops (e.g. Makarkin, 1991; Makarkin & Archibald, 2013). The Oligocene record for these insects is currently reduced to two species, both in the genus Nothochrysa McLachlan, 1868. Here we describe a new Oligocene green lacewing from the lacustrine Konservat-Lagerstätte of Aix-en-Provence.
