Eight species of mecopteroid Panorpida are known from the Lower Permian Wellington Formation of Elmo (Dickinson County), Kansas; one of those species, Permopanorpa inaequalis Tillyard, 1926, is documented for the first time from the Wellington Formation fossil insect beds of Noble County, Oklahoma. The holometabolous species (insects with complete metamorphosis) of the Wellington Formation Lower Permian fauna, which comprise 7% of the total of nearly 200 species, are listed and briefly reviewed.
