Abstract or Summary
  • A new species of Dryophthorus (Coleoptera:Dryophthoridae) and two new species of Stenommatus (Coleoptera:Dryophthoridae) are described from Dominican amber. D. microtremus n. sp. is characterized by monochrome dorsal scales, nearly parallel sides of the pronotum, wide elytral intervals and the elytral apex only slightly narrowed. S. tanyrhinus n. sp. is characterized by an elongate rostrum 4.5 times as long as wide in the middle. S. leptorhinus is characterized by small body size, a thin rostrum 3.0 times as long as wide in the middle, wide striae and a narrow prosternal process. This brings the total number of species of Dryophthorini in Dominican amber to 5, which is more than half the number of extant species.
