Insects in Burmese amber



Burmese amber contains the highest diversity of insects out of all the Cretaceous ambers. There are 26 orders and 206 families recorded and 252 described species, of which 211 have been named in the past 15 years. The number of families is about half of all known insect families living at that time.
