Abstract

Aivalykus dominicanus, n, sp., is described from two male specimens preserved in Dominican amber, and represents the first described species of the genus from the Neotropics. The specimens are 15-45 million years old. The new species is remarkable by the elongated abdominal terga (longer than the rest of the body), and is distinguished from the four extant Aivalykus species by a more elongated first abdominal tergite and differences in fore wing venation.
