X-Ray Examination of fossil insects in Cretaceous amber of N.W-France

X-Ray Examination of fossil insects in Cretaceous amber of N.W-France Summary Inside a rather opaque amber of the Middle Cretaceous of NW-France one of the oldest terrestrial taphozoenoses of arthropods was found, the included insects being partially converted into pyrite. Accordingly it was possible to make high resolution radiographs and to determine some especially well preserved insects as belonging to the orders Isoptera, Planipennia and Coleoptera. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annales de la Société entomologique de France (N S ) Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Summary Inside a rather opaque amber of the Middle Cretaceous of NW-France one of the oldest terrestrial taphozoenoses of arthropods was found, the included insects being partially converted into pyrite. Accordingly it was possible to make high resolution radiographs and to determine some especially well preserved insects as belonging to the orders Isoptera, Planipennia and Coleoptera.
