Abstract

A new genus and species of aetheogrammatid lacewings is described and figured from the Jurassic of eastern Inner Mongolia, China (Daohugou; Jiulongshan Formation). Ectopogramma kalligrammoides Engel, Huang, and Lin, new genus and species, is noteworthy for the forked c-sc crossveins and presence of veinlets between the c-sc crossveins and the presence of some marginal twigging, while still retaining many putative apomorphies with the slightly more extreme venation of Aetheogramma Ren and Engel (Early Cretaceous; Yixian Formation). The wing venation provides a tantalizing link between the more extreme venation of the younger and more derived Aetheogramma speciosum Ren and Engel, nomen emendatum, and the venation of families such as Kalligrammatidae. Ectopogramma is placed in a separate subfamily, Ectopogrammatinae, new subfamily. The genus Kalligrammina Panfilov is considered as family incertae sedis.
