Detailed Fossil Caddisfly (Trichopterae) In Baltic Amber

This is an amazingly detailed, 44 million year old fossil caddisfly (order Trichopterae) preserved in Baltic Amber. This 5mm long fly is so detailed that you can even see the facets of the eyes under microscope. A much smaller unidentified insect can be seen near the center of the amber specimen as well.

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, which is often plastics with insects embedded in it. The insect inclusions in amber are almost always tiny. Larger insects are able to struggle free and are not preserved. If you see something that looks too good to be true, it often is. Make sure to buy from a reputable dealer.
