2.4mm True Bug (Heteroptera) In Baltic Amber - Great Eyes

 
This is a 44 million year old detailed fossil true bug (sub order Heteroptera) preserved in Baltic amber. The insect itself is about 2.4mm long. This specimen is of the order Hemiptera, family Miridae, commonly called leaf bugs.

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.
