Fossil Fly Swarm (Diptera) and an Unidentified Larva in Baltic Amber

 
 
 
This is an amazingly detailed 44 million year old cluster of small fossil flies (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic amber. The largest fly is about 1mm long. There is a small unidentified larva within this amber as well.

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.
