Fossil True Bug (Miridae) In Baltic Amber

This is a 44 million year old detailed fossil true bug (suborder Heteroptera - family Miridae) preserved in Baltic amber. The insect itself is about 2.5mm wide.

As a reminder, most inclusions in Baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. A physical photo of the specimen is included with your order 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.
