Detailed Fossil Fly (Mycetophilidae) with Eggs In Baltic Amber - Rare!

This is a amazingly detailed, 44 million year old fossil fly (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic Amber. It's about 4mm wide. Adjacent to the fly are multiple eggs, likely from the fly itself. There is a second fly in this amber specimen, likely of the same species.

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.
