Abstract:

A new species Oviparosiphum stictum sp. nov. is described and assigned to the extinct family Oviparosiphidae from the Lower Cretaceous of Yixian Formation at the Huangbanjigou, Beipiao City, Liaoning, China. Well-developed ovipositors in several extinct families of Mesozoic aphids further demonstrates that oviparity is a plesiomorphic state.
