Abstract

An overview of previously described fossil nitidulids is given with details on deposits with confirmed nitidulid representation. Notes on estimated ages and potential placement of fossils described to the species level is also given. A new genus and species of cillaeine sap beetle, Palaeopeplus cascus Powell & Cline is described from Dominican amber. A diagnosis and images are provided to distinguish this genus from all other New World Cillaeinae.
