Insectini is a name used for all known extinct clades of insects such as Pyratidae and Maxxeridae.


Eorhyniella maximus (meaning "proto Rhyniella") is a fossil insect from Dudley's Wren's Nest Nature Reserve. It was c.426-c.413 miillion years old.

Its remains were discovered in 2017. Reconstructed from only a small fragment.

It remains unknown whether it is a synonym of Insectini or whether it should be classed as a non-insect.
