A new species of tumbling flower beetle (Coleoptera: Mordellidae) Tomoxia succinea sp. nov. is described based on two Baltic amber specimens. The new species differs from the only extant European species of this genus, Tomoxia bucephala Costa, 1854, mainly in the shape of the scutellum and the length ratio of particular body parts. The fossil records of Mordellidae found in Baltic amber are summarized; their paleoecology in the Paleocene–Eocene of the Baltic region and the composition and distribution of the family Mordellidae are discussed.
