Abstract

A new rove beetle is described and figured from Early Eocene amber of India. The specimen, though damaged by compression and with a limited number of views for its study, is complete and belongs to the subfamily Osoriinae. Paleosorius cambayensis Ortega-Blanco, Chatzimanolis, and Engel, new genus and new species, is described as the oldest Osoriinae, and its relationship with other fossils in the subfamily is briefly discussed.
