A new genus and species of sphaeropsocid bark louse is described and figured from a single individual in Late Cretaceous (latest Cenomanian) amber from Agapa, western Taimyr Peninsula, northern Siberia. Globopsocus aquilonius n.gen., n.sp. is a relatively primitive member of the family and further demonstrates that these insects were once widespread and global, in contrast to their restricted austral distribution today. The species is distinguished from related taxa and a discussion provided regarding its phylogenetic position within Sphaeropsocidae.
