Abstract
  • Paleorhodococcus dominicanus n. gen., n sp. (Actinobacteria) is described from a fecal droplet of Triatoma dominicana (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae) in Dominican amber. The fossil can be distinguished from most extant species of the closely related extant genus Rhodococcus Zopf, 1891 by its spherical cocci forming substrate filaments with elementary branching, the clustering of coccoidal elements , the short filaments bearing reduced side branches and its occurrence in a fecal droplet of the extinct triatomine bug, P. dominicanus. This is the first fossil record of an Actinobacter and shows that these organisms formed symbiotic associations with insects by the mid-Tertiary.
