This is a very unusual pair of millipedes in amber. There are two Myriapoda Millipedes (Diplopoda) trapped in this amber piece (one is easily seen in the close-up photo - the second can only be seen in the photo of the amber piece itself. Millipedes differ from Centipedes in that they have two pairs of legs on each body segment - Centipedes only have one pair. The large Millipede in this piece is obvious and has nice detail. The many legs are easily seen. The other one is in the bottom far-right of the amber piece photo. It, too, is nice and has good detail. This is a very collectible pair of fossilized Millipedes in Dominican Amber (small close-up photo is included for free).

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
