New fossil Tipulidae from the volcano-sedimentary Latest Oligocene of Bes-Konak (Turkey)

Open access

ABSTRACT

Three new species of Tipula from the Latest Oligocene of Bes-Konak (Turkey) are described, viz. Tipula (Platytipula) anatolica sp. n., Tipula (Tipula) oligocenica sp. n. and Tipula (Trichotipula) paicheleri sp. n. A morphological comparison with their closest recent and fossil relatives is provided.
