It comprises two new genera: Ellia gen. n. and Polyanka gen. n.; the first with two species, E. colorissima sp. n. and E. khara, sp. n., the second with P. mlnuta sp. n. Age and phylogenetical relations of Elliidae fam. n. is discussed; the family shows wing venation characters linking the Axymyiomorpha and the oldest, TriassicAnisopodomorpha.
