(A) The entire coprolite (semi-transparent) and small fossil insect/arthropod inclusions colored in: brick red – insect tibia; gold – beetle elytra; greenish yellow – other arthropod inclusions. (B) Ventral and lateral views of a small beetle elytron. (C) Ventral and lateral views of an insect tibia, probably belonging to a beetle.
