Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
A new genus including two new species of fossil cupedids, Latocupes fortis gen. and sp. nov. and L. bellus gen. and sp. nov., is described from the Yixian Formation of western Liaoning Province, China and assigned to family Cupedidae. A brief morphological analysis shows that the new genus might be sister group of extant genus Priacma.
