      Abstract

      A new weevil species – <i>Baris grossacavis</i> Poinar and Legalov, sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) – is described from Dominican amber. The new species is close to <i>Baris rubripes</i> Casey, 1892, but differs by possessing large punctures over much of its body, including the pronotum; elytral intervals with rows of narrow scales, and narrow elytral intervals. <br><br> The fossil is the first record of the subfamily Baridinae from any amber source and the first record from the Miocene.
