KEY WORDS: Neuroptera, Osmylidae, Kempyninae, Jurassic, Kyrgyzstan, new species.

ABSTRACT. Three new genera and five new species of osmylids are described from the late Early Jurassic — early Middle Jurassic of Kyrgyzstan: Tengriosmylus magnificus gen. et sp.n., Erlikosmylus obscurus gen. et sp. n., Mesosmylina shurabica sp. n. and M. angusta sp. n., Sauktangida aenigmatica gen. et sp.n. The fossil record of Jurassic osmylids is briefly discussed. The proposal is made that S. aenigmatica gen. et sp.n. represents the ancestral condition of MA in hindwings of Osmylidae.
