dc.description.abstract "The fauna of fig wasps (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea: Agaonidae: Agaoninae) preserved in early Miocene (Burdigalian) amber from the Dominican Republic is reported. Three species are described, representing both of the exclusively neotropical genera Tetrapus Mayr and Pegoscapus Cameron: Tetrapus delclosi Pe�nalver and Engel, new species, T. apopnus Pe�nalver and Engel, new species, and Pegoscapus peritus Pe�nalver and Engel, new species. All are described and figured based on females that are exquisitely preserved. The species are distinguished from each other as well as from modern relatives"--P. [1]. en_US
