Amberclipsis gen. nov. is an extinct genus discovered in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. Three new species (A. elegans sp. nov., A. oblongus sp. nov., and A. simplex sp. nov.) are placed in the family Pseudoneureclipsidae, characterized by the absence of fork I and the presence of fork III in hind wings and by the two-segmented inferior appendages in the form of ventral coxopodites and basodorsal harpagos in male genitalia. Protoclipsis gen. nov. is another extinct genus with three new species (P. ulmeri sp. nov., P. picteti sp. nov., and P. roeseli sp. nov.), also found in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. The genus is characterized by the presence of forks I, III in hind wings and by the two-segmented inferior appendages with ventral coxopodites and basodorsal harpagos in male genitalia. The affiliation of Protoclipsis in the family Pseudoneureclipsidae is not true; unless fork I of hind wings was lost within the family except for the ancestral lineage Protoclipsis.
