Double Fossil March Fly (Plecia) - Green River Formation

 
 
 
This is a double fossil "March Fly", Plecia pealei from the Eocene aged Green River Formation in Utah. The largest fly is .47" long and shows quite a bit of detail under magnification. Unfortunately both flies are disarticulated.

Beware: I've seen many of these flies for sale of fossil shows that are more or less just painted onto the rock and don't have any visible detail to their bodies.
