Mosquito lovers from the Baltic Amber Forest! - "Chironomidae"

Mosquito lovers from the Baltic Amber Forest! - "Chironomidae"
PALEOGENE-Eocene, Ypresian (47.8–56.0 million years) - Russia

You are bidding on selected inclusions from one of the largest collections in Germany, which consists of amber from all over the world (Baltics, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Burma), and I am offering them for auction for reasons of age.
Authenticity, quality and rarity are guaranteed, some pieces are suitable for museums, this is the case in an estimated percentage of less than 1% of all finds.

In a compact amber 3.5 x 3 x 1 cm, outside raw and
inside very clear, a clearly visible chironomid couple "Chironomidae" can be seen.
The male on the left with tuft antennae.

Scientifically determined.

It is still perfectly connected and was immediately
firmly enclosed by resin, which is rare.

A rare action or experience exhibit from the prehistoric Baltic amber forest for the dedicated collector.

3 multi-layer shots are attached, where each millimetre has been photographed approx. 25 times.
