Infraclass Paleoptera consist of primitive insects (evolved early in the lineage of insects), and are comprised of the orders Ephemeroptera and Odonata. The wings often cannot be flexed over the back when the insect is at rest. The immature stages of existing paleopterans live in aquatic habitats. These are important components in aquatic systems, and the adults of Odonata are also important predators. The infraclass Neoptera, on the other hand, are a diverse groups of relatively modern insects.
