Oligochlora, new genus, is described from Oligocene or Lower Miocene Dominican amber and two species are recognized-O. eickworti, new species and O. micheneri, new species. Comments are made on the phoretic mites preserved with the specimens and on the overall age of the tribe Augochlorini in which Oligochlora is placed. A summary of described fossil Halictidae is presented. All are restricted to the subfamily Halictinae and none are older than the Lower Oligocene.
