Abstract

A new species of Miocene crane fly, Tipula paleopannonia, new species, is described and figured from a well preserved forewing. The specimen derives from the Paldau Formation (Early Pannonian, ca. 11.3 Ma) and is the first new species of Tipula described from the Miocene of Europe since the mid-1800's.

Anhand eines gut erhaltenen Vorderflügels wird in vorliegender Arbeit eine neue Schnakenart, Tipula paleopannonia, sp. n., beschrieben. Das Stück stammt aus der Paldau-Formation (Frühes Pannonium, ca. 11,3 Mio.J.) und ist die erste Neubeschreibung einer Tipula-Spezies aus dem Miozän Europas seit Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts.
