Hello my fossil maniacs.
Thank you for suggestions about put it also here. It is my latest find described with my name as founder. ( already got few more )
I am happy becouse this is first wasp finally and also very important for science.
Here is author citation from my social media :


"An excellent example of how important work you fossil hunters do! This particular animal is a really interesting one, uniting present day helorids to extinct ones!"

That's why i am doing this. Everyday searching for treasures in ambers. Also i am from Poland where we got deposits so it is for me kind of haritage.
This is not easy  to find something new but with determination we can do big things.

Best wishes from Poland.
