A new fossil bee species, Neocorynura electra, is described and figured. The species is known from one female in the Upper Oligocene or Lower Miocene amber deposits of the Dominican Republic. No species of Neocorynura are known to occur in the Greater Antilles today. This is only the fourth halictid species known from amber inclusions. A brief discussion of augochlorine biogeography in the Caribbean is presented.
