Four Detailed Fossil Flies and a Moth Fly In Baltic Amber

These are four beautifully detailed 44 million year old fossil flies (order Diptera - family Dolichopodidae) and a moth fly (order Diptera - family Psychodidae) preserved in Baltic amber. The length of the largest fly is about 5mm including legs.

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.
