Abstract

The Carboniferous was a period of high diversification of the polyneopteran insects of the superorder Archaeorthoptera (so-called ‘orthopteroid’ insects) (see Fossilworks site at http://fossilworks.org/bridge.pl?a=home). Some of the Late Carboniferous outcrops are very rich (Mazon Creek in North America, Commentry in France). The Konservat-Lagerstätte of Avion (Northern France) is especially rich for a Moscovian outcrop, with no less than six described genera and species: Aviogramma gracilis Prokop et al., 2014, Aviocladus pectinatus Prokop et al., 2014, Aviohapaloptera bethouxi Prokop et al., 2014, Aviologus duquesnei Coty et al., 2014, Cacurgus avionensis Schubnel et al., 2020, and cf. Tococladus sp. (Coty et al., 2014; Prokop et al., 2014; Schubnel et al., 2020). Here we describe a new genus and species, the first representative of the Carboniferous family Eoblattidae Handlirsch, 1906 from this outcrop, on the basis of a forewing.
