Fossil Adult (Imago) Moth (Lepidoptera) in Baltic Amber

 
 
This is a 44 million year old hairy moth (order Lepidoptera) imago that's preserved in baltic amber. The moth is about 7.5mm wide and it was in its fully developed adult stage when it preserved.

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.
