Fossil March Fly (Plecia) - Green River Formation

 
This is a fossil "March Fly", Plecia pealei from the Eocene aged Green River Formation in Utah. It's .35" long and shows quite a bit of detail under magnification. Small pieces of the fly are missing.

Beware: I've seen many of these flies for sale of fossil shows that are more or less just painted onto the rock and don't have any visible detail to their bodies.
