Plain Language Abstract

Systematic clarification and a new diagnosis of the fossil genus Architipula Handlirsch from the family Limoniidae (Diptera) are presented. Two new synonyms are proposed in this version of the paper: seebachiana under seebachi, and Liassotipula under Architipula. A new species is described based on material from the Toarcian of England.

Los géneros Architipula Handlirsch, 1906 y Grimmenia Krzemiński y Zessin, 1990 (Diptera: Limoniidae) del Jurásico Inferior de Inglaterra

Se presenta una nueva diagnosis y una aclaración sistemática para el género Architipula Handlirsch, 1906 (Diptera, Limoniidae). Las especies Architipula seebachiana Handlirsch, 1906 y A. seebachi (Geinitz, 1884) son sinonimizadas. Liassotipula Tillyard, 1933 del Jurásico Inferior (Toarciense) de Inglaterra se considera aquí como un sinónimo más moderno de Architipula. El subgénero Architipula (Grimmenia Krzemiński y Zessin, 1990) es elevado al rango de género, Grimmenia, y se describe una nueva especie, Grimmenia tillyardi n. sp., del Toarciense de Inglaterra.

Une nouvelle diagnose et des clarifications sur la systématique du genre Architipula Handlirsch, 1906 (Diptera, Limoniidae) sont présentées. Architipula seebachiana Handlirsch, 1906 et A. seebachi (Geinitz, 1884) sont mises en synonymie. Liassotipula Tillyard, 1933 du Jurassique inférieur (Toarcien) d'Angleterre est ici considéré comme un synonyme junior d'Archipitula. Le sous-genre Architipula (Grimmenia Krzemiński and Zessin, 1990) est élevé au rang de genre Grimmenia et une nouvelle espèce, Grimmenia tillyardi n. sp., est décrite dans le Toarcien d'Angleterre.
