Palerasnitsynus ohlhoffi gen. et sp. n. is described from Burmese amber of late Albian (Lower Cretaceous) age. This is the first record of the family Psychomyiidae from Burmese amber, and the earliest fossil record of the family. The genus Palerasnitsynus gen. n. differs from all other known psychomyiid genera by the absence of fork III in the forewings.
