Fossil Bristletail (Archaeognatha) and Fly (Diptera) in Baltic Amber

This is an amazingly detailed, 44 million year old fossil Bristletail (order (Microcoryphia) Archaeognatha, family Machilidae) with a fossil fly (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic Amber. The bristletail is approximately 4mm long.

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.
