Fossil Leaf, Scuttle Fly, Gnat, Midge, and Springtail in Baltic Amber

This specimen features a detailed, 44 million year fossil leaf, a scuttle fly (family Phoridae), a dark-winged fungus gnat (order Diptera - family Sciaridae), a biting midge (order Diptera - family Ceratopogonidae) and a springtail (subclass Collembola) preserved in a piece of Baltic amber.

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.
