A new suborder of Thysanura for the Carboniferous insect originally described as larva of Bojophlebia, with comments on characters of the orders Thysanura and Ephemeroptera

N.Ju. Kluge

Abstract. The fossil wingless insect originally described as larva of Bojophlebia procopi (Ephemeroptera) belongs not to Ephemeroptera, but to Thysanura. It is named Carbotriplura kukalovae gen. et sp. n. and placed in the suborder Carbotriplurina subordo n. Here the order Thysanura is accepted in the Börner’s sense, since the widely accepted Henning’s division of Amyocerata (= Ectognatha sensu Henning) into Monocondylia and Dicondylia is not based on actual features. Characters of Ephemeroptera and Thysanura are discussed; the differences between tergaliae and parategra and between wing buds and paranota are explained.
