  1. liaoning insect fossil

    I just bought this insect. What kind of insect? Location:Liaoning .China
  2. baltic amber

    This insect is 3.5 mm long. I am posting several views of the same specimen I can find the right way to get a picture of it.
  3. Hello, This is my first post of this forum and I would like to show you some of my unidentified macro plant spores and vertebrate remains found in residue from fallen bits of plant debris bed picked up at Yaverland IOW, photos were taken under AmScope USB microscope, hope you like them. Still to experiment with the Toupview stacking software, watch this space. The Albaneretontid jaw holds nine teeth, this is the one I hope to get my stacking software working on. I have thrown in a close up of a termite coprolite apparently they have not changed in shape (hexagonal) for 75 million years. These are so abundant in the plant debris bed residue you end up ignoring them after a while. The rest I have not identified yet and are actually mega spores I believe. Also I found a tiny insect wing on the surface of some Bembridge limestone and a section of reed from a different piece. This is why the Isle of Wight is such a special place for me.
  4. Miocene insect

    Hi all, Here is a beautiful insect that I received from @Darko in a trade. It's from the marl stone mine of Popovac, in Serbia. It's Miocene in age (14 mya). Can anyone tell me more on this insect, as in what genus/species it is? Thanks in advance! Max
  5. Amber Inclusion ID

    Hello, a friend of mine gave me this fossil of baltic amber from an antiquity of 40 million years. It has an insect. I would like to know what kind of insect it is.\
  6. Lighting for amber photography

    Working on my amber photography setup. Right now, having issues with lighting the insect up properly. Still working on getting the focus correct, just switched to a steomicroscope with a c-mount adapter for my Cannon Rebel. Shooting remotely with the EOS app. Lighting with the scope's backlight and a dual arm microscope light. Any ideas?
  7. Today was a really good hunt! I was as always,hunting at my hunting grounds in Popovac with my girlfriend , so it was her first time to hunt fossils with me! We found insect at the beginning,then bulrush and at the end of our hunt we have found fishes and fish bones1. It was really amazing! Enjoy guys !
  8. Green River insect ID

    Newby at fossil forum.(or any other forum).Have been collecting fossils and minerals for years.Amateur/recreational,not too techy.but learning.Recently,Aug 2017 i was surface collecting wood and amber in the Green River Formation Area in Wyoming.USA.Examined a 4 inch x 3 inch piece of palm wood.(pictured).Found a visibly clear what appears to be a Damselfly,it has a reddish color tail and a black body,can also see a white colored tube on it.(feeding?).Also another insect in the piece is reddish colored which i cannot identify.And also another inclusion in the resin also pictured with the squiggly stuff on the bottom.I do not know what that is either.The photos are not the best.As I can see real detail in the insects with the naked eye as I look into this palmwood resin.My questions also are:Is ths 20-50 MYO Cretaceous? Where can i find more info on Green River Insects? Has anyone seen anything like this?
  9. paleoentomology

    PCS (NB: 12 Mb)
  10. Hi all. We found this on the rocky Pacific Ocean beaches about 50 miles south of Mendocino, CA. To my untrained eye it looks like a winged insect or perhaps scales. Or am I seeing what I want to see? The photos give dimension and one shot is 7X macro. Any thoughts or comments are always greatly appreciated!
  11. Can you please help ID?

    Is this a bee, ant, or something else? Was found in Florrissant Fossil Quarry back in 2011 by my oldest grandchild. I added this to my small collection for safe keeping. If you could ID it, I would be most appreciative and my grandchild would be excited. Thanks. Forgot to input found in Colorado. Thanks.

  13. Is this a shrimp in burmite amber ?

    Is this a shrimp in burmite amber or insect larvae ?
  14. Another nice find. What is it?

    What is this one? That is a nickel next to it in the one pic to give you an idea on size.
  15. Here's one I ran across the other day, Simply put, this is one of the most aesthetically attractive fossil insects preserved on shale I have ever seen. A practically perfect specimen in superb condition. And excellently photographed by a museum technician. It's from what they're calling the Miocene Savage Canyon Formation, Nevada. Some quick research disclosed that, unfortunately, it's from a locality that is no longer accessible to the general public. Somebody more experienced with matters entomological will perhaps recognize just what exactly the bug is: R E L A X, folks--I fully understand that technically speaking it's not a true bug, of course. Looks dipteran, obviously. The photograph is from a web page over at http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?enlarge=0000+0000+1215+1242 .
  16. Insect Antenna or Plant Fragment?

    Hi all, I noticed this weird little object on a rock in my collection from the famous Talbragar Fish Beds (late Jurassic of Australia) and I was wondering whether it might be a feathery insect antenna or just a small bit of plant. Both plants (conifers and ferns mostly) and rare insects are known from the site. It measures only 5 mm long and I have done a quick drawing of it to show the form easier. Note the double branching tips on the lower filaments. Cheers!
  17. Insect wing?

    Hi. I found this in South Yorkshire, UK in the Pennine Middle Coal Measures formation (upper Carboniferous.) Is it part of an insect wing or just a plant? I think it may be the negative half of the fossil though I'm not sure. Thanks, Daniel

  21. How to polish amber?

    Hello, New to this forum. I recently have developed an interest in fossil inclusions in amber. After buying a number of prepared pieces, I decided I would like to try my hand at polishing some of my own. I found myself the owner of several hundred pieces of Dominican amber with inclusions. I have been doing a wet sand, and feel like I am close, but the pieces just don't seem to be getting a nice clear transparent finish. Any tips for finishing? I attached a few photos, the piece with the winged ants is from my collection and was polished by someone else, just for contrast with the one I was working on. I have a few pieces that look like they may have rarer inclusions (one looks like an earwig), so I am hoping to perfect the technique on a few more common pieces before I try my better ones. Thank you! Nathan
