Dominican Amber

Item 105

I get a kick out of pieces like this. There is a lot here - a tropical stingless bee, Hymenoptera, Meliponini, genus Proplebia. On top of that there is a winded termite, Isoptera and a very special unknown animal (just not sure on this.) This is sure to be an interesting piece of Dominican amber.

Item 106

This is one cool spider. It is commonly called the oil-can spider. Take a close look at the body and you will see why they are called this. They are not common in Dominican amber (although I would not say they are rare). There is a little confusion in terminology of this genus: it is either Lasaeola or Dipoena (family Theridiidae). The amber is small and thin.

Item 107

A rather unusual situation with this piece.  It contains a moth fly, Diptera, Psychodidae.  While that is not very unusual, this is a female that is laying eggs.  Often in the throes of difficult situations, females will often lay eggs (assuming they are pregnant).   This is one such unique situation.

Item 108

1.75 x 1.5 x .75 inches and about 17.1 grams.  This large cab has an interesting color and pattern on it.  You will enjoy looking at these pictures.  There are two small 'dead' areas on the the cab - which do not detract at all - great price.

Item 110

Don't look at this one, if you do, you will fall in love with it. There is a perfect long legged fly, Diptera, Dolichopodidae. It is such a thrill to see such a beautiful animal.

Item 111

Homoptera, Fulgoroidea - there are 2 planthoppers in this piece of Dominican amber. One planthopper is very small. In fact the small one looks as though there is a mite on one of the back legs (but upon further inspection, it is not a mite)- really cool. Finally there is a large springtail, Collembola (not shown in pictures).

There is something about a leaf (or in this case, part of a leaf) that is just plain cool. You can even see what looks like stomata on the leaf.

Item 115

Unknown beetle (?) is a smallish piece of amber.  Covered with a 'blanket' of haze, I cannot positively ID this guy.  The surface of the amber is crazed and needs some polishing - thus the inexpensive price.
