  1. 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:
  2. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/12/science/amber-bird-foot.html
  3. 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?
  4. Pseudoscorpion

    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.

  8. I need help with this scale pattern. Snake or lizard? Cenomanian cretaceous
  9. On the surface this looks like a feather but i don't know if there are any plants that look like this. Here are the pics. Piece extracted from the cenomanian clay pits. Dated by argon from volcanic crystals on strata to cenomanian age late cretaceous.

  11. Cretaceous Cenomanian Leaf Cutter Ant (?) Please Id

    I am at a loss on how to verify if this is a leaf cutter ant. If it is it is far older than anything yet discovered on leaf cutter ants. Notice the square shaped leaf fragment near its face. I don't know what it might be if not the ant's prize. Science says that these insects started to cultivate fungus in the tertiary. Advice?

  15. I just received this amazing piece of Burmese amber yesterday. The seller thought the long strands were pine needles, but I think they are segmented coprolites from an insect/larva similar to that of the modern sawfly larva. While, I'm pretty good at spotting fossilized fecal matter, I'm not so good at bugs. I'm hoping someone here can help me ID the insects and mite so that I can confirm this dates to the Cretaceous. 1. Can anyone tell me what this one is? It was identified by the seller as a sand fly. I'm hoping the terminal appendages (hopefully I'm using the correct terminology) might be diagnostic. 2. Next is this little flying insect (the wings are really hard to see), that was identified by the seller as a wasp. It looks more like a flying ant to me, but I know next to nothing about bugs. 3. This one looks like a mite to me, but was not mentioned by the seller. 4. The boxy shape of this one looks like a smaller version of what I've seen identified as "bark beetle" in Dominican amber. However, I haven't been able to find anything similar Burmese amber.
