Cratotabanus Grimaldi & Arillo & Cumming & Hauser, 2011 – Wikispecies link – Pensoft Profile
- Cratotabanus Martins-Neto and Santos, 1994: 291. Type species: Cratotabanus stenomyomorphus Martins-Neto and Santos, 1994. Crato Formation (Aptian), Early Cretaceous of Brazil.
Cratotabanus isdistinguished from modern tabanids by veins M1, M2, and M3 long, with lengths of M1 approximately the same as that of cell d (vs. 0.5 – 0.7× length of cell d in Recent Tabanidae); R5 only slightly deviated from the path of vein R4+5 (in most Recent tabanids, excepting Chrysops Meigen 1803, R5 curved strongly downward). Distinguished from some Cretaceous Tabanidae, as follows: Eotabanoid Mostovski et al. 2003 and Yixian Formation genera with longer R1 (reaching well past level of apex of cell d); fork of R4+5 in Eotabanoid, Palaepangonius Ren, 1998, and Eopangonius Ren 1998 much longer (about equal in length to vein M1).
