  1. Hello, I would like to share with the forum some amber specimens I possess. These fossils are encased in burmite, amber dated to ~99 million years ago. Anyone else have some?

    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.

    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.

    Skin molt in amber?

    In one of the pieces of Burmite amber I bought from @holdinghistory recently, I found what I think may be molted skin from something. Reptile, insect or worm, I have no clue. Measures 1 cm long by 5 mm at the widest. Pics 1 - 4 show the texture at 200 x. 5 & 6 show the entire piece at 20 x. Any ideas?

    Burmite amber bug

    I've got another insect of some sort (at least I think it's an insect) in some cretaceous period amber from Burma. Measuring about 1 cm long, with swept back antennae (I think) that run the length of it's body. Unfortunately, due to lack of resources, I can't get the really good, close detailed pics I'd like and this piece of amber is darker than normal. Which doesn't help with the pics. Anyhoo, 4 pics showing the full length. Not the best preserved, but still visible, although part of it looks to be missing. Any idea's as to what it might be? Other than really, really dead of course.

    Burmite bead bug

    Another little burmite bug. This one is in a bead just shy of 2 cm across. This bug is one of a few in it, and of course, the tail is angled down a bit. The bug itself is about 2 mm long & looks like it just sat there patiently to be covered with the resin. Seriously, it looks almost posed. 2nd pic shows the tail end a bit clearer.
  8. Hey all, I was just wondering if there has ever been a study comparing fossils of the organisms trapped in amber to similarly located/aged "conventional" rock fossils. It would certainly be interesting to see how the organisms compare between the two forms of preservation- one as a flattened impression and the other looking like it was just alive yesterday.
  9. 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
  10. Hello again guys. As you may know, I just started in this world and I'm pretty enthusiastic about it. So I was taking a look at some listings in an auction website and the following items caught my attention. I had no reason to suspect the veracity of them judging by the photos (and I may be completely wrong since I have virtually none experience with this, but to me, it seemed real). What made me suspicious is what the seller stated about them, which follows: "Q: Why I use heat test ,the smell is not pine resin? A: Because the most insect ambe

    Burmite insect Identification

    Hi all Im looking for advice for resources for identifying Insect and plant inclusions in burmite, or similar aged amber. I am open to purchasing or using online resources. They originated in Hkamti and Tanai , Kachin, Burma.. Ive got about 25 pieces that Id love to work on, and my google-fu Has been been failing to turn up much, although I have some plans to do some more generic insect family studies. Ive got a usb microscope for taking close ups, and will eventually learn how to stack images for better quality. In case anyone's worrying the pieces passed the Electrostatic and saltwater tests
  12. Hello everyone. So I have a question about a piece of burmite amber in my collection that I am certain is authentic. It does not release a smell when heated...I've found that my darker colored specimens will release a stronger pine smell than the lighter colored ones, however. Why is this one not giving off any smell? I'm sure it's being heated to a temparure high enough to release the smell. It passed the saltwater test, distinguishes from copal with the acetone test, and has cracks and chips characteristic of amber. It has a rather large inclusion of half of some species of grasshopper. I've
  13. Hello all. So I recently obtained a new specimen in burmite amber from Mayanmar that I think is particularly interesting. It appears to be some species of early bee. This amber is thought to be from the Cretaceous period which is when bees evolved (in the later half) alongside flowering plants. I found an interesting article that describes one of the earliest bees Melittosphex burmensis. This insect had characteristics of both wasps and bees, and was covered in branched hairs, which is a key characteristic of pollen spreading bees. I researched this species and found that my specimen didn't lo

    Arachnid? in Burmese amber

    Hi guys and gal, I recently bought some burmese amber pieces online. When I looked through this particular piece, I was amazed at the inclusion within it. It looks like a spider or tick, or some type of arachnid, however I am no entomologist. I was wondering if one of The Fossil Forum’s members could help me id this mysterious little critter. The specimen come from northern Myanmar/Burma and is about 99 million years old from the middle Cretaceous period. I have never seen an insect like this. It is quite squared in shape. It is a small insect around 3-4 mm. Through a 10x le
  15. Hello together, I have been finding online offers of feathers in Burmite recently, some look rather like recent birds´, other look structurally different at least to the everyday feather you get, the later often called dinosaur feathers. Price range is enormous. Any advice on how to recognice the good ones? I wouldn´t expect to afford a nonavian dinosaur feather, but a cretacious Bird would be nice, if real. Thanks in advance, J
  16. I need help with this scale pattern. Snake or lizard? Cenomanian cretaceous
  17. 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.
  18. Although lizards are prime material for fakers, i think this tail is authentic. It is an unusial cast fossil. Kind of like a ghost form. It seems that the tail became detached. Much like they do today. This is cenomanian age amber. From Myanmar kachin state.
  19. Here's a shrimp-like Cretaceous Dipluran with two Ticks. Gorgeous piece!

    Cretaceous mushroom in amber????

    I need help in identifying this. Is it a mushroom in Cretaceous burmese amber? Cenomanian burmite from machine state?
  21. Hi, I have what seems to be a female scale insect acarii(?) that still seems to have unfertilized/ stillborn young in a couple of sacks. 2nd photo, the pebble like things in the center of the body. The first photo is the famous specimen in the earlier stage of brooding. My specimen may be a late stage one. What do you make of it?
  22. 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?

    Pseudoscorpion in Burmite?

    Just looking for a little help identifying a couple of Burmite inclusions. Would I be right in thinking the inclusion near the bottom of the piece is a pseudoscorpion? It's small, measuring around 3mm across. I'm also unsure what the inclusion directly in front of it might be - some kind of grub? Thanks in advance!

    Wing in Burmite Amber

    Recently, I went to burmite market in Myitkyina City, Kachin State, Myanmar. I bought a few Burmese amber (burmite) include this little one. It is about 1 and half inches big (roughly square shaped) inside there is a wing. I am not sure about what wing it is and I am guessing a butterfly. What do you guys think what wing it is.
  25. 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
