Item 17

An interesting piece.  There are many, many air bubbles with 20 million year old samples of air - some even have bubbles insideThere is a nice fragment of a Bryophyte.  There is a winged termite. Finally there are three unknowns near an edge.  One of the unknowns looks like an ant, but seemingly has 8 legs.  I do not think it is a spider, but am not sure. There is a curled ant.

Item 18

Lots of stamens and anthers scattered here. There is also a petiole, a possible sepal, the shed of a spider (cool), a fly and even an isopod. This is like the one above, always something new when you look at it. There is even a possible Hemipteran - although I cannot see it well enough for any type of ID. Also included for your viewing pleasure is a spider with very long legs.
