Abstract:

A new diagnosis and systematic clarification of the genus Architipula Handlirsch, 1906 (Diptera, Limoniidae) are presented. Architipula seebachiana Handlirsch, 1906 and A. seebachi (Geinitz, 1884) are synonymised. Liassotipula Tillyard, 1933 from the Lower Jurassic (Toarcian) of England is here considered to be a junior synonym of Architipula. The subgenus Architipula (Grimmenia Krzemiński and Zessin, 1990) is raised to the rank of genus Grimmenia and a new species, Grimmenia tillyardi n. sp., is described from the Toarcian of England.

Keywords:
