Abstract : Odontoponera pseudotransversa n. sp. is described from Miocene-aged amber of Zhangpu, Fujian Province, southeastern China. This is the first fossil occurrence of Odontoponera, a southeast Asian genus of ponerine ants otherwise known by only two extant species. Although remarkably similar to Odontoponera transversa, the new fossil species displays intermingled characters of the two Recent species and a few unique features.
