Fossil Diptera Trichoceridae new species Zherikhinina Nothotrichocera Shar Teg Upper Jurassic Gondwana Laurasia


A new trichoceriid species of a fossil genus Zherikhinina Krzeminska, Krzeminski & Dahl 2009 is described from Shar Teg, a well known Upper Jurassic locality in Mongolia. Its plausible ancestry to a Recent genus Nothotrichocera Alexander 1926 supports the Laurasian origin of this latter genus, now of strictly circum-Antarctic distribution.
