Hi All,

this is a very interesting article on the Chrysididae recorded from the Late Eocene Rovno amber (Ukraine).
The authors suggest that the genera Palaeobethylus Brues, 1923 and Palaeobethyloides Brues, 1933 (described as Bethylidae and only recently identified as Chrysididae (Sorg, 1988) and placed in the subfamily Amiseginae) could belong to a distinct subfamily.

The article is open access.
