Abstract

Colorifuzia agenora n. gen., n. sp., attributed to the family Fuziidae Vršanský, Liang & Ren, 2009 is described from the Middle Jurassic of Jiulongshan Formation in Daohugou Village (Inner Mongolia, China). The new species is the first representative of the family with distinct pattern of coloration, indicating Fuziidae was able to adapt to diverse environments in this locality during the Middle Jurassic. Plesiomorphic characters such as considerably wide body, forewing large, coloration markings suggest Colorifuzia n. gen as a comparatively plesiomorphic taxon among Fuziidae.
