Lygistorrhina caribbiana sp. nov. (Diptera: Lygistorrhinidae), the first fossil of this extant genus, is described from Dominican amber. All other fossil Lygistorrhinidae, which are known from older amber deposits in other regions, belong to extinct genera. This is the first fossil record of this rare family in Dominican amber and the first record for Hispaniola in general as the family is currently unknown from the extant fauna.
