Abstract

Two new mantid lacewing genera and species, Archaeosymphrasis pennyi gen. et sp. nov. and Habrosymphrasis xiai gen. et sp. nov., are described from mid‐Cretaceous Myanmar amber. Phylogenetic analysis recovered the new genera as stem‐group Symphrasinae, sister to the rest of the subfamily. These represent the oldest fossil record of the subfamily Symphrasinae (Neuroptera, Mantispidae) and illuminate the evolutionary history of Symphrasinae, as well as providing insights into the group's historical biogeography. They also provide new evidence for divergence time estimates of extant mantispid subfamilies.
