    Amber Inclusion

    I found this amber inclusion for sale, and my first impression is that it looks like some kind of mammal tail. Maybe it's a plant?
  2. Although there was no February 29th this year (yes, I have birthday every four years ), anyway I got some pretty fossils from my family. I was inspired by @Vieira, who asked if I had any amber fossils in my collection and I concluded (with shame) that I actually had none - so I asked to receive some for the next gift-related occassion and here they are - they come from Myanmar: Here are some close-ups:
  3. What is this thing? It appears to be some vegetation or a tail of some sort. Could anyone help identify it?

    Smarididae non det.

    Taxonomy according to GBIF Smarididae are large predatory mites with long oval bodies that are clearly pointed at the front. The (recent) predatory mites are usually red in color and densely hairy with slender, sometimes very long legs. They have either one or two pairs of eyes. Identified by Dr. J. Dunlop (Museum für Naturkunde, Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Science in Berlin, Germany) and Dr. J. Makol (Department of Invertebrate Systematics and Ecology, Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences, Poland) as Smarididae indet. References: Dunlo
  5. The wing tips and the terminalia are not completely preserved, a 100% sure determination is probably not possible. An assignment into the affinity of P. aphoe (hence P. cf. aphoe) seems nevertheless possible. Taxonomy from fossilworks.org. Diagnosis for the genus Phlobotomites in Stebner et al. 2015, p. 18: "Eyes without eye bridge; mouthparts well developed; first flagellomere long; last palpomere shorter or equal to the preceding one; wing with a broad distal half and broadly rounded tip; Rs four branched; R2 and R3 separated; origin of R4 apical to origin of R5; male terminalia ph
  6. Hi everyone! Recently my friend have just bought this. This is Myanmar amber from one seller that we usually trade but he don't have any idea about ID it. So I would like to ask you is this actually dinosaur or bird. What is the best label for it if it hard to ID. Thanks for reading!

    Proterosceliopsis sp.

    Proterosceliopsidae are parasitoid wasps that lay their eggs on or in the bodies of other arthropods, sooner or later causing the death of these. This is a female. Taxonomy according to Fossilworks.org. Diagnosis for the family Proterosceliopsidae according to Talamas et al. 2019, p. 20: “Antenna with 14 or 15 antennomeres; malar sulcus present (Fig. 7); facial striae absent (Fig. 7); malar striae absent (Fig. 7); pronotal cervical sulcus present as a furrow of fine setation associated with glandular excretion (Figs 16, 48–49, 51–53, 59); mesopleuron with transepisternal line and mesepi

    Burmite amber feather - dino or bird?

    Hello everyone! I recently started looking at burmite amber online and found this interesting feather inclusion. I'm not sure if it's avian or non-avian. Quite wispy but shape suggests avian... I'm not sure. Any info is very much appreciated :)!

    Burmite Amber Insect Id help

    Hi everyone! Can anyone help me id some small insects in amber? They're all from Myanmar and about 99 million years old. They're pretty small, mostly about 2 millimeters or less. I took the best photos I could, any help narrowing down what type of insect (or possibly arachnid) is greatly appreciated.

    Helius krzeminskii Ribeiro 2003

    Taxonomy from Ribero 2003. Between thorax and abdomen sits an undefined ectoparasite, an Acari (mite, belonging to the arachnids), and sucks the body fluid of the crane fly. Diagnosis from Ribeiro 2003, p. 404: "Rostrum ca. 0.5 x the length of head; head ca. 0.81 X the length of palpi; stigma lacking; outer gonostylus almost straight, curved abruptly at tip, not bifid; interbases absent. Wing and head line drawing from Ribeiro 2003, p. 406: Identified by oilshale. Reference: Ribeiro, G.C. 2003. A new fossil Helius (Diptera: Limoniidae) from Burmese amber. S

    Phlebotomus sp. - Sandfly

    From the album: Invertebrates

    Phlebotomus sp. Sandfly in Burmese amber Upper Cretaceous Hkamti Sagaing Region Myanmar Body length ~1mm Unpleasant bloodsuckers like this sandfly, which mainly fed on warm-blooded animals, existed already in the Cretaceous. My first successful attempt to stack photos.
  14. Seems the questions raised around that exciting news of an avian dinosaur preserved in Burmese amber were right after all. The original paper has been retracted by its authors, after the discovery of another fossil closely resembling the previously discovered skull portion of Oculudentavis was classified as a species of lizard, rather than an avian dinosaur. Disappointing for dinosaur fans, but it doesn't change the fact that any Late Cretaceous vertebrate preserved in this way is still an exceptional find. Read more: https://www.nature.com/artic
  15. Two new species of cockroaches preserved in amber have been found in a mine located in Hukawng Valley, Myanmar. The new species are named Mulleriblattina bowangi and Crenocticola svadba and placed in the Nocticolidae family. The mine where the new cockroach species were found is dated to about 99mya and represent the first and only creatures to be discovered living in caves before the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event. https://cosmosmagazine.com/palaeontology/dinosaur-age-cockroaches-are-the-earliest-known-cave-dwellers The paper describing the new findings is foun

  17. Hi all, I recently got this crab as a gift from a Burmese friend. He said it came from the Rakhine State, western shore of Myanmar. He said his friend found it there. Unfortunately, neither of them kept any extra provenance detail about it. I can find no info whatsoever about this crab online. I don't think Myanmar fossils outside of amber have easily accessible documentation. This crab looks like it might be a Galene bispinosa. Does anyone know what species it is, and what age or formation it possibly came from? Thank you.
  18. Hello! I see this big probably mosquito (0,5mm) in Cretaceous amber. What do you think? It seems real mosquito? I read that is unusual to find mosquitos in amber. Thank you so much.
  19. Hello! I see this 3 amber Burmese pieces with feathers. The seller told my that the feathers are from dinosaur. I am looking for amber information but is difficult to find a good resource. What do you think? Amber 1

  23. I read news stories about the discovery of extinct birds in Myanmar being preserved in Burmese amber. Does any have an idea of how these birds could have survived in Burmese amber without their skin decomposing? Can you image a Miocene fossil bird from the Caribbean being preserved in Dominican amber?

    Burmese amber is around 99.6 mya. There are various other inclusions in this piece. Edit: According to Danilo Harms from the University of Hamburg, this is a juvenile Chernetidae member.
