Abstract

Trypoxylon dominicanum sp. n., T. eucharis sp. n., and T. pallidiventre sp. n., each represented by a single specimen from Dominican amber, are the first described fossil Trypoxylon Latreille. The specimens are between forty-five to twenty-five million years old (Late Eocene to Late Oligocene). All three species belong to the Neotropical fabricator species-group. T. dominicanum sp. n. has unusually modified fore femora and male antennal flagella that differ from previously described species in the genus. Trypoxylon eucharis sp. n. and T. pallidiventre sp. n. have a mesosomal color pattern which differs from other members of the species group.
