I was browsing eBay’s amber offerings when I stumbled across this rather interesting item:
It’s a ring bearing a piece of Baltic amber and a pair of arthropod inclusions.
For 5 Myrmecos points, be the first commentator to correctly guess the subfamily of the ant. For 5 more, be the first to guess the genus. Sadly, I can offer only points- to get the ring itself you’ll need to bid.
The cumulative points winner for the month of January will take home their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my photo galleries, or 2) a guest post here on Myrmecos.
