The Upper Cretaceous Siberian genus Cretoneta Chernova is transferred from the family Leptophlebiidae to the family Siphlonuridae. Its type species, C. zherichini Chernova, is redescribed and C. acmoptera sp. nov., based on male imago, is described. From the same locality, Palaeoanthidae fam. nov., of the superfamily Ephemeroidea is described, with a single genus Palaeoanthus gen. nov. and two species - P. orthostylus sp. nov and P. minutus sp. nov. The new species of the family Leptophlebiidae - Leptophlebia (Paraleptophlebia) electra sp. nov. - is described from Baltic amber based on a male imago. Comparable diagnoses are given for the winged stages of the family Siphlonuridae s.l., superfamily Ephemeroidea, and family Leptophlebiidae. Age of the family Leptophlebiidae is discussed. -from Author
