About the Journal
Kentiana is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that disseminates paleontological research carried out at or in association/collaboration with the Center for Paleontology at the Illinois Natural History and State Geological Surveys, Prairie Research Institute, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Cheiloceps arachnophila sp. nov. (Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea: Issidae) is described and illustrated based on a well-preserved adult male, representing the second species of Issidae known from Early Miocene (Burdigalian) Dominican amber. The only previously described issid from Dominican amber is transferred from Thionia Stål to Cheiloceps Uhler: Cheiloceps douglundbergi (Stroiński & Szwedo) comb. nov. Comparative notes on Cheiloceps and Thionia are provided.
