9mm Caddisfly Larval Case With Larva In Baltic Amber

 
This is a 9mm long protective case of a Caddisfly larva associated with a Caddisfly larva in baltic amber.

Caddisfly larva create tubular cases for protection. These protective cases are made out of silk, secreted from salivary glands near the mouth of the larva as well as various tiny items such as grains of sand, bark, sticks, or even shell of other animals.

As a reminder, most inclusions in baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. Included with your order is a physical photo of the specimen, and we will also email you a high resolution digital copy.

Please note, the market is flooded with fake amber, often plastic with insects embedded in them. In fact the majority of amber I see sold on the internet is not real. If you see something that looks too good to be true, often it is. Only buy amber from reputable dealers.
