A new genus of Thanerocleridae, Archaeozenodosus bellus Yu and Kolibač gen. et sp. nov., is described and illustrated from the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian, ca. 99 Ma) amber near the Hukawng Valley of northern Myanmar, making it the first Mesozoic record of the family. Morphological characters preserved in the Burmese amber highlight the diversity of thaneroclerids during the Late Mesozoic and provide data for future phylogenetic studies of Thanerocleridae.
