Abstract

Diphleps yenli n. sp. is described from two specimens preserved in Dominican amber. A revised key to the species of Diphleps is provided. Initial studies suggest that species of Diphleps can be classified in two groups based on the magnitude of the anterior pronotal concavity angle of males: less than 140-degrees on D. maldonadoi and D. yenli, n. sp. which occurs in Puerto Rico and occurred in Dominican amber, respectively; equal to or greater than 140-degrees on D. similaris, which inhabits Turks and Caicos as well as the Bahamas archipelagos, and D. unica, known from the eastern United States.
