Abstract

A new species, Oligembia vetusta, is described on the basis of a male in lower Tertiary amber from the Dominican Republic. The new species is the first fossil representative of the family Teratembiidae. The systematic position of the new species is discussed, as is the paraphyletic nature of the genus Oligembia. A cladogram of teratembiid genera is presented.
