Cantabroraphidia Pérez-de la Fuente, Nel, Peñalver & Delclòs, 2010 – Wikispecies link – Pensoft Profile
- Cantabroraphidia Pérez-de la Fuente, Nel, Peñalver, and Delclòs, 2010: 109. Type species: Cantabroraphidia marcanoi Pérez-de la Fuente, Nel, Peñalver, and Delclòs, 2010, by original designation.
According to the original diagnosis, this monospecific genus was characterized by the following combination of characters: minute size (forewing length 5.5). Head more or less quadrangular; with portion posterior to the compound eyes slightly shorter than the eye diameter and not tapering caudad; three large ocelli present, situated between anterior half of the compound eyes; posterior border of head with a distinct collar-like lip. Pronotum subequal in length to head length, with anterior half narrowed dorsoventrally relative to posterior half (i.e., with slight downward curve in lateral view). Process present at midlength of the metatibiae in a posterior position. Forewing with costal field relatively broad (at widest point costal field as broad as pterostigma); pterostigma elongate, without crossveins; Sc terminating into C in distal two-thirds of wing length; four c-sc crossveins; two discoidal cells posterior to MP; 1cua-cup crossvein strongly basad M-CuA separation; posterior branch of MP forked. Refer to Pérez-de la Fuente et al. (2010) for a complete description of the type and only known species from El Soplao amber, based on an adult of unknown sex.
