An exquisitely preserved and nicely displayed rare Asilidae or Robber Fly in an authentic Dominican amber gemstone. Robber Flies have been described in Mexican, Dominican and Baltic ambers, their fossil record goes into the Mesozoic, there is one report of a Robber Fly in New Jersey mid Cretaceous amber which was collected by a close friend of ours, however this specimen has not been described, the only other Cretaceous Asilid is from Aptian limestone of the Santana Formation in Ceara Brazil. This is only the second Asilid we've ever seen in Dominican amber. This specimen has been examined by paleoentomologists at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. This specimen was collected in the amber mines north of Santiago in December of 2003.
