Here is an excellent insect entombed in amber. This is a very fine True Midge (Chironomidae) from the Eocene amber deposits of Russia. The piece of amber has been highly polished on all sides for optimal display. The insect exhibits very fine detail - the head, body, wings, and long legs are all present - even the antennae are intact. The fly is beautifully showcased in the honey-colored piece of fossilized tree resin. This is a great specimen of a True Midge in fossil ''ooze''.

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