Two new pygmy grasshoppers (Orthoptera: Tetrigidae: Cladonotinae) are described from specimens preserved in Early Miocene (Burdigalian) amber from the Dominican Republic. Antillotettix electrum sp.nov. and Baeotettix lottiae gen. et sp.nov. are the first tetrigids to be described from Dominican amber.
