AbstractThe ichnotaxon Teredolites Leymerie, 1842, represented by T. longissimus Kelly & Bromley, 1984, is documented for the first time from the Lesser Antilles. Its occurrence also represents the first record of the ichnotaxon from the Miocene of the Caribbean. Five specimens, each occurring in isolation without an enclosing xylic (wood) substrate, but merely calcite-lined tubes, occur in the Miocene Grand Bay Formation of Carriacou, the Grenadines, Lesser Antilles. Stratinomic considerations suggest that following physical destruction or biological decomposition of their enclosing substrate(s), the tubes may have accumulated in relatively shallow water only to be subsequently resedimented into a deeperwater (> 150 m) environment.
