dc.description.abstract "Trinemurodes antiquus, n. sp., and Trinemurodes miocenicus, n. sp., from Dominican amber (ca. 20 Ma) are the first fossil species of the family Nicoletiidae. They can be placed in the genus Trinemurodes (subfamily Subnicoletiinae) with two extant species living in the Malesian area (Sumatra and the Moluccas), making these the only known New World species of the genus. The rarity of the Nicoletiidae in the fossil record contrasts with other families of Zygentoma (Ateluridae, Lepidotrichidae, Lepismatidae), probably a result of their more edaphic mode of life"--P.
