Abstract

Hemitrinemura exstincta, n. sp., is described from Dominican amber (ca. 15-45 Ma). The new species is considered to be the only Neotropical representative of a genus with (?) three living species known from Papua New Guinea, Melanesia, and Polynesia. This species is the third Nicoletiidae fossil from New World amber; it is easily distinguishable from previously described taxa (two species of Trinemurodes Silvestri) by the complete praetarsus.
