Abstract

A new genus and species of the peculiar braconid wasp subfamily Masoninae is described and figured from a female preserved in Early Miocene (Burdigalian) amber from the Dominican Republic. Anoblepsis konokeraia Engel and Bennett, new genus and species, belongs to the tribe Masonini but differs from the hitherto only known genus, Masona van Achterberg. The genus is diagnosed and compared with its modern counterparts. Anoblepsis konokeraia is the third braconid species documented from Dominican amber and the second of the subfamily Masoninae.
