Detailed Fossil Caddisfly and Two Flies in Baltic Amber

This is a nicely detailed 44 million year old fossil caddisfly (order Trichoptera) preserved in Baltic amber. The length of the caddisfly is about 5mm. This amber also contains two small flies (order Diptera) alongside the caddisfly.

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.
