Examples of "handlirsch"
Anton Handlirsch (exactly Anton Peter Josef Handlirsch, 20 January 1865, Vienna – 28 August 1935, Vienna) was an Austrian entomologist.
His father was Peter Handlirsch (1831–1873) and mother was Rosina Handlirsch (born 1841). His father worked as a cook of the Schwarzenberg family. His surname Handlirsch came from "merchant".
The family was established by Handlirsch (1906) on the basis of the type genus "Tarsophlebia" Hagen, 1866.
The Berothidae are a family of winged insects of the order Neuroptera. They are known commonly as the beaded lacewings. The family was first named by Anton Handlirsch in 1906.
The family was first erected by the Austrian entomologist Anton Handlirsch in 1908. Like Butler, Handlirsch insisted that palaeontinids were members of lepidopteran Heteroneura (butterflies and moths). Palaeontinids were then only known mostly from poorly preserved specimens like "Palaeontina" and "Eocicada". He claimed they were related to the extant family Limacodidae (slug moths). The English entomologist Edward Meyrick supported the lepidopteran conclusion, though he believed they belonged to the family Hepialidae (ghost moths) instead. He said "There is little doubt that it [i.e. "Palaeontina oolitica"] belongs to the Hepialidae."
The name Cicadomorphidae was once proposed as a replacement for the name Palaeontinidae in 1956 by the Australian entomologist J.W. Evans. This was because of Handlirsch's earlier insistence that the type species "Palaeontina oolitica" may not have been Hemipteran. However, Evans later conceded that retaining the name Palaeontinidae was preferable as the drawings Handlirsch based his conclusions on were from badly preserved specimens.
The present museum organization dates from 1876. The entomologists Ganglbauer and Karl Holdhaus (Coleoptera), Rogenhofer and Hans Rebel, Josef Emanuel Fischer von Röslerstamm, Josef Johann Mann (Lepidoptera), Franz Friedrich Kohl, Carl Tschek and Maidl (Hymenoptera), Brauer (Diptera and Neuroptera), and Anton Handlirsch (for fossil insects) contributed substantially to the international reputation of the museum.
The family group taxon was established by Needham (1903) as subfamily Stenophlebinae (sic) of the extinct damsel-dragonfly family Heterophlebiidae. It was emended and elevated to family rank Stenophlebiidae by Handlirsch (1906). "Stenophlebia" Hagen, 1866 is the type genus of this family.
The specimen was first studied and described by the prolific paleoentomologist Anton Handlirsch from a specimen collected by Canadian geologist and paleontologist Lawrence M. Lambe during fieldwork in central British Columbia. Only a single specimen, the holotype, is known, which was collected on July 21, 1906 from fossil bearing rocks near the Horsefly mine in Horsefly, British Columbia. The genus was named from "archi" referring to the primitive appearance of the wing characters and "Inocellia", the type genus for Inocelliidae, the family the genus was placed in originally. The species name is a combination of "oligo" in reference to "Oligocene", the age the location of the fossil was thought to be, and "neura".
The holotype consists of a superimposed partial pair of wings, one forewing and one hindwing, thus not allowing for gender identification and body description. The bases and several small areas of the apex and pterostigmal region are missing. The preserved length of allows the estimation of a total forewing length between and . Though difficult to distinguish from one another, the forewing and hindwing vein structures show several distinct traits that set the genus apart from other raphidiopteran genera. Anton Handlirsch notes the damage to the pterostigma prevents determining if any cross veining is present. In a basal position from the stigma is a cross vein which does not correspond to the cross vein in the same region of modern "Raphidia" species.
Initially a pharmacist, Handlirsch became an assistant to Friedrich Moritz Brauer in the department of entomology of the Natural History Museum of Vienna in 1892. He became the director of this department in 1922, a function which he held until his retirement. He specialised in the Hymenoptera and the Hemiptera, his work concerning the evolution of these and other insects. His principal work, which appeared between 1906 and 1908, was on insect fossils and he was the founder of insect palaentology. The University of Graz gave him the title of Doctor of Science honoris causa and he was made a member of the Academy of Science of Vienna. He is best known for "Die Fossilen Insekten" (1906–1908) – 1,433 pages and 51 plates – and his contributions to the third volume of Christoph Schröder's "Handbuch der Entomologie" (1920–1925) – 1,201 pages with 1,040 figures.
In 1849, some ant fossils from Radoboj were studied by Oswald Heer, then a professor with the University of Zürich. He placed the single species he described in the living genus "Formica" as "Formica ocella" and in the same paper, a single male was described as "Formica ocella" var. "paulo major" based the large size of the abdomen. The species was retained in "Formica" by Gustav Mayr in 1867 and Anton Handlirsch in 1907. Mayr named two species "Liometopum antiquum" and "Hypoclinea haueri" in an 1867 publication on the ant fossils of Radoboj. The species "Hypoclinea haueri" was moved in 1893 by Karl Wilhelm von Dalla Torre from "Hypoclinea" to the combination "Iridomyrmex haueri", a placement that was not changed until 2014.
