Diptera Psychodidae Dominican Republic Trichomyiinae fossil insects palaeobiodiversity taxonomy chresonymy


Trichomyia (Septemtrichomyia) grimaldii sp. nov. and Trichomyia (Trichomyia) fudalai sp. nov. from the Lower Miocene Dominican amber are characterised, described, illustrated and their taxonomic position discussed. These fossils constitute the first record of the Trichomyiinae and increase the knowledge on the biodiversity of the biological inclusions from the Dominican amber. Chresonymy and subgeneric division of the genus Trichomyia are presented and briefly discussed.
