dc.description.abstract "Sclerogibbodes embioleia, new genus and species, is described from a female preserved in early Cretaceous (Neocomian) amber from Lebanon. The genus is sister to all other members of the Sclerogibbidae and is therefore placed in a monogeneric subfamily, Sclerogibbodinae, new subfamily. Sclerogibbids are obligate parasitoids of webspinners (order Embiodea = Embiidina, Embioptera), and thus the recovery of this lineage from Lebanese amber implies that webspinners were perhaps also present in the paleofauna"--P. [1]. en
