Detailed Fossil Parasitoid Wasp (Braconidae) In Baltic Amber

This is a detailed 44 million year old fossil parasitoid wasp (order Hymenoptera - family Braconidae) preserved in Baltic amber. The length of the wasp including antennae is about 4.8mm in a polished 13 x 9 x 4mm piece of amber.

As a reminder, most inclusions in Baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. A physical photo of the specimen is included with your order 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.
