Francesco Vitali The cerambycids included in Baltic amber: current knowledge status with the description of new taxa (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae)

Abstract: A synopsis of all cerambycid species recorded from Baltic amber until today is provided and analysed according to the current systematic and paleontological knowledge. Only eight species result to be valid. A further new species, Encyclopidonia punctatissima n.gen.n.sp. (Cerambycidae, Lepturinae, Rhagiini), is described. The new genus Trichosieversia for Pseudosieversia europaea VITALI, 2004 is instituted. The analysis of the cerambycid Baltic fauna strongly implies the presence of temperate environmental conditions and suggests therefore to date the Baltic amber at least to the Early Oligocene.
