Fossil Insect Cluster - Green River Formation, Utah

This is a fossil insect cluster from the Green River Formation of Uintah County, Utah. Most of these are beetles (order Coleoptera), though there are three Tumbling Flower Beetles (family Mordellidae), a couple of crane flies (Pronophlebia redivivia) and a wasp (order Hymenoptera). Some of the insects are positive fossils and others are casts. Under magnification very interesting details appear.

While this formation is best known for well preserved fossil fish found in Wyoming, other sections of the formation contain a very diverse insect fauna.

Comes with an acrylic stand.
