About this book

Language: Chinese with English summary

Shan wang, one of the most famous fossil localities in the world, lies 22 kilometers east of the Linqu town in central Shandong province, China. The fossils are embedded in the Shanwang formation, an accumulation of thousands of diatomaceous layers. It is like a natural museum, with a wide variety of fairly well-preserved plant and animal fossils. Chinese paleontologists regarded the Shanwang tripolite beds as mid-Miocene sediments, but some researchers , such as Li and others (1984) as well as Qiu and others (1986), believed that it is of the early mid-Miocene age. The fossil insects collected from the Shanwang formation and described here include 272 species within 161 genera of 74 families in 12 orders, of which 45 species of 37 genera have been published not long before (Hong, 1979,1983,1985;Hong and Wang, 1985; Lin 1982). Reexamining those holotypes, however, a revision of their diagnoses and taxonomic positions has been made in this writing by the present writer. All the type specimens described in Fossil Insects From Shanwang, Shandong, China are conserved in Shandong Provincial Museum and Linqu Paleontological Museum
