Detailed Fossil Parasitic Wasp (Apocrita) in Baltic Amber

This specimen features a small but detailed, 44 million year fossil parasitic wasp (suborder Apocrita) preserved in Baltic amber. The wasp measures about 1.5mm long including appendages and antennae.

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.
