Abstract or Summary
  • Amber preserves microscopic, soft-bodies organisms and is a good medium in which to trace the evolution of pathogen-vector associations. Spirochetes-like cells (Spirochaetales: Spirochaetaceae) in the hemocoel and lumen of the alimentary tract of a larva tick (Amblyomma sp. Arachnida: Ixodidae) in Dominican amber are described in the collective fossil genus and species, Palaeoborrelia dominicana n. gen., n. sp. The size and shape of the fossil spirochetes closely resemble those of present day Borellia species. This discovery represents the first record of spirochetes associated with fossil ticks.
