Fossil Caddisfly (Trichoptera) & a Fly (Diptera) in Baltic Amber

This is a 44 million year old fossil caddisfly (order Trichoptera) that is associated with a fossil fly (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic Amber. The caddisfly is about 3.5mm long and can be seen in very nice detail under microscope.

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.
