This is an extremely detailed fossil insect. It is an unidentified lacewing from Brazil. This specimen is simply one of the best fossil insects we have seen. All of the minute features are beautifully preserved. The head, with its long, segmented antennae, is practically flawless. Many of the thin, fragile legs are intact and well displayed. The segmented body is complete down to the pair of spines at the end of the tail. And the wings..well, they are simply fabulous. The delicate lacewing pattern is extremely well preserved on both sides. The bug is almost perfectly centered on a large, 6" X 6" matrix plate, with a small piece of wood also preserved on the plate. This is easily one of the most detailed insect fossils we have ever encountered.
