Detailed Fossil Jumping Spider and Fly in Baltic Amber

This specimen features a nicely detailed, 44 million year old fossil fly (order Diptera - family Dolichopodidae) and a jumping spider (order Araneae - family Salticidae) preserved in Baltic Amber. Including appendages, the fly is about 5mm wide.

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.
Order Araneae - Family Salticidae (Spider) & Order Diptera - Family Dolichopodidae (Fly)
