Fossil Crane Fly (Diptera) In Baltic Amber

This is a nicely detailed 44 million year old fossil Crane fly (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic amber. The length of the fly is about 2.5mm. This fly is of the sub family Limoniidae.

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.
