Abstract or Summary
  • A new genus and species of chrysomeline, Stenaspidiotus microptilus, n. gen., n. sp., (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Chrysomelinae) is described from Dominican amber. Diagnostic characters include an elongate, flattened body; small eyes; a narrow, long pronotum with a width/length ratio of 1.6, an irregular pronotal surface with marginated lateral edges, distinct humeral calli, confused elytral speckling, large scutellum, elongated mesosternum, emarginated but non-fissured 3[superscript rd] tarsomere and simple claws. On the pronotum of S. microptilus is a macrotype egg characteristic of the family Tachinidae (Diptera). This is the first Chrysomelinae from Dominican amber and the first fossil record of tachinid oviposition.
